Jackson Nelson Biography

Wednesday, 21 September 2022
West Coast delist Jackson Nelson, Hugh Dixon and Tom Joyce.
Monday, 3 July 2017
Dom Sheed and Jackson Nelson each sign two-year contract extensions that will keep them at West Coast until the end of 2019.

"We're obviously very happy that both Dominic and Jackson have committed to the club for the next few years, having both taken their games to another level this season," Eagles football manager Craig Vozzo said.

"They're both important parts of the club's future and we're excited with where they can take their careers.

Tuesday, 25 April 2017
Jackson Nelson is ruled out for a month due to a broken wrist.

Nelson fractured his wrist in the second term of West Coast's demoralising loss to Hawthorn at the MCG, but played out the match and finished with 17 touches and five tackles.

Saturday, 4 April 2015
Jackson Nelson makes his AFL debut for West Coast at Docklands Stadium with 9 disposals (6 kicks and 3 handballs), 2 marks and 5 tackles in a 10-point loss to the Western Bulldogs.
Thursday, 2 April 2015
West Coast draftees Tom Lamb and Jackson Nelson will make their AFL debuts against the Western Bulldogs in the Eagles' 2015 season opener.

"Lamby's exciting, he's going to be a very good player," West Coast coach Adam Simpson said.

"He's showed some signs at the moment he can match it at AFL standard.

"You still don't quite know what you're going to get, which is exciting in itself.

"Whereas Jackson is a reliable, tough defender that can use the ball well, with a real defence-first attitude.

"We need that in our side. He'll play down back, and Lamby will play up forward.

"We're not going to put too much pressure on the two boys. An opportunity to play seniors in round one is great, but it doesn't mean they'll play every game or they'll slip straight into our team for the whole year."

Sunday, 29 March 2015
West Coast coach Adam Simpson says draftees Liam Duggan, Tom Lamb and Jackson Nelson could all make their AFL debuts in the first month of the season.

"We haven't made a decision (about round one), but they'll play senior football at some stage," Simpson said.

"Whether it's round one, that's not the be all and end all. But the fact is that both of those kids (Lamb and Nelson) have played every game of the pre-season.

"Liam Duggan performed well at East Perth on the weekend. So we can see at least three potential first-gamers in the next month or so, safe to say."

Friday, 28 November 2014
West Coast select Jackson Nelson with pick No.51 in thee 2014 NAB AFL Draft.

"He has a bit of versatility, half-back to midfield, is a really good user of the footy, reads the game well, kicks well both sides of his body and defends well so we thought it was a nice bonus for Jackson to be there," Eagles recruiting manager Rohan O'Brien said.
