Sam Kerridge (born 26 April 1993) is a professional Australian rules football player who plays for the Adelaide Football Club in the Australian Football League (AFL). He was recruited with pick #27 in the 2011 National Draft.
Kerridge made his AFL debut in Round 3, 2012, against Hawthorn, starting as the substitute, and did not play another game in a successful year for the side. In 2013, Kerridge played 11 games and established himself as one of Adelaide's main taggers, nulifying the impact of key opposition players including Chris Judd, Ryan Griffen and Grant Birchall. He also showed promise as an offensive player, most notable against North Melbourne in round 9 where he helped the Crows claim a thrilling come from behind win with 6 goals and 24 disposals, for which he was awarded an AFL Rising Star nomination.
Kerridge played 14 games in 2014 either side of a mid-season foot injury. He continued to rotate between tagging duties (in the absence of regular tagger Nathan van Berlo) and an opportunist small forward role. His best performance was against North Melbourne once more, in round 13, when he kicked four goals.
