Shai Bolton Biography

Wednesday, 11 September 2019
Shai Bolton signs a new two-year deal with Richmond to remain at the club until the end of 2021.

Bolton had significant interest to return to his home state in Western Australia but has re-committed to the Tigers in a show of faith for their role in his maturity in recent seasons.

Monday, 15 July 2019
Shai Bolton is the round 17 AFL Rising Star nominee.

Bolton has played a career-high 10 games this season, gradually making the move from the forward line to the midfield as the year has progressed.

"The coaching staff and 'Dimma' (coach Damien Hardwick) told me I needed to work on my fitness and defence to get into the senior side," Bolton told AFL.com.au.

"I went back home (Perth) and got a personal trainer to help me out. I worked on [the fitness side there] and then when I got back to pre-season, I focused on my defensive skills and tackling.

"At the start of the season I was playing VFL in the midfield, and I wanted to learn my craft there. Being around the ball more helps me perform more and I just play my best footy in the midfield."

Wednesday, 3 October 2018
Shai Bolton signs a new one-year deal to remain at Richmond in 2019.

"We put talks on hold until the end of the year but that was more so Shai could concentrate on his football and developing his game," Bolton's manager Ralph Carr said.

"He loves the club, loves the facilities Richmond has the best indigenous facilities in the AFL and he can't wait to return for the pre-season."

Thursday, 30 March 2017
Shai Bolton will be unavailable for AFL selection until round five after the Tigers accepted he would need to serve his VFL suspension in round one of the state league competition.

The small forward was charged with striking Northern Blues opponent Tom Williamson in a VFL practice match, pleading guilty on Monday and accepting a one-match ban.

Bolton will need to serve the suspension in round one of the VFL season, which coincides with the AFL's round four, making him ineligible for senior selection for the next three weeks.

Friday, 25 November 2016
Richmond select Shai Bolton with pick No.29 in the 2016 National Draft.

"He brings a great deal of flair and speed," Richmond recruiting manager Francis Jackson said.

"He was exceptional in the carnival and has played well in big games. An opportunist he is not yet 18."
