Sunday, 2 April 2023
Jordan Dawson wins the Showdown Medal after being judged best on ground in the Crows' 31-point win over Port Adelaide, but says that Riley Thilthorpe was more than worthy of the medal after the young forward's five-goal haul against the Power.

"I probably said I thought it was his medal," Dawson said of Thilthorpe.

"I was proud of him (because) you can see the work he's doing. To see him step up and play a real big boy presence was really pleasing to see as a captain."

Saturday, 11 February 2023
Jordan Dawson is appointed Crows captain for the 2023 season, taking over the role from Rory Sloane.

"I could not be more excited to captain the club I barracked for growing up as a kid," Dawson said.

Friday, 1 April 2022

Tuesday, 12 October 2021
After a lengthy standoff, Adelaide and Sydney agree on a deal for Jordan Dawson whereby the Crows give the Swans a future first-round pick for Dawson tied to Melbourne's ladder position next year for the wingman.

The decision means the Swans will get a first-round pick out of the 24-year-old, who had a career-best season with the club and finished third in its best and fairest, instead of risk losing him in the NAB AFL Pre-Season Draft.

Wednesday, 6 October 2021
Adelaide has warned it could use the NAB AFL Pre-Season Draft to secure sought-after wingman Jordan Dawson amid an ongoing trade battle with Sydney.

Adelaide is unwilling to cough up its first pick in this year's NAB AFL Draft - No.4 overall - in exchange for Dawson. Its next selection is No.23 but that will not satisfy the Swans, who offered Dawson a five-year contract.

"It's certainly not the way clubs like to do deals - they like to reward the club that had the player. But I guess at the end of the day if it (a trade) doesn't happen, I guess that's an alternative," Adelaide football director Mark Ricciuto said on Triple M Adelaide.

Monday, 4 October 2021
Sydney say they will demand a high price for Jordan Dawson who has requested a trade to the Crows.

"We had big plans for Jordan, and it was reflected [in the] offer that we put in front of Jordan.

Wednesday, 15 September 2021

Dawson is yet to nominate which of the Crows or Power is his preferred destination.

Friday, 28 June 2019
Jordan Dawson signs a new two-year deal with Sydney to remain at the club until the end of 2021.

Taken with pick 56 in the 2015 draft, Dawson played just five games in his first three seasons, but has fronted in 12 of the Swans' 13 clashes in 2019, kicking eight goals and looking like being an important cog of the club's ongoing rebuild.

"I've always believed that I could contribute to the AFL team at the Swans. I was just having to bide my time and injuries have held me back at various points as well. But I've always had that internal belief that I could play at AFL level," he said.

"It's nice to be doing that and I know that I've still got heaps to give, so that's promising and exciting for me."

Tuesday, 20 June 2017
Jordan Dawson signs a new deal with the Swans that will keep him at the club until the end of 2019.

"Jordan played his first game against Collingwood (in round three) and has been back in the NEAFL since, but hes really starting to dominate games," Swans head of football Tom Harley said.

We think hes a fantastic character and exactly the type of person we want to have around the club and hes developing really nicely as a footballer."

Friday, 7 April 2017

"Has really strong hands overhead and has a booming left foot kick."
