Producing the same consistently good performances Bomber fans have come to expect, Stanton was once again prolific in 2013, making use of his massive endurance to run teams off their legs. Stanton proved a vital component in the team’s attacking plays, producing 13 more inside 50’s than his next-best teammate, while also kicking 14 goals of his own.  Missing only one game with a groin complaint, Stanton has become one of the leaders at the Bombers, playing his 200th game against West Coast in Round 20, 2013. Stanton is likely to further enhance his leadership credentials in 2014 and take his game to the next level.

Season by Season

Runner-up spot in the Bombers' best and fairest was reward for a brilliant second half of the year after the hard-running midfielder had a slow start to the season playing through the pain of a cracked shoulder blade. The 25-year-old led the club in kicks (343) and handballs received (217) and was in the top five for marks, handballs, inside 50s, rebound 50s and loose-ball gets. Into his ninth AFL season and in Essendon’s leadership group, Stanton is an essential part of the Bombers’ midfield.
