Bradley Norton is a left-sided full-back and current captain of South Melbourne.

A remarkably resilient player, Norton has played at least 23 matches in each of his seven seasons at South Melbourne. 

Following the sacking of Luke Byles midway through the 2013 season, Norton was made captain for the remainder of the campaign.[1] In 2014, Norton's hold on the left full-back position seemed at risk when fellow left-back Shaun Timmins was signed midway through the season, but Norton won the role back by the end of the season.

In 2015 Norton won the club's best and fairest award. In 2018 Norton played his 200th competitive game for the club in the 1-0 win at Bentleigh Greens.

Prior to joining South Melbourne, Norton had played for Port Melbourne Sharks, Melbourne Knights, and Northcote City, before playing two games with Adelaide United in the A-League. His A-League debut saw him come on a subsitute for future South Melbourne teammate Joe Keenan.[2]
