James "Kel" Kelly (born December 29, 1983) is an Australian Rules Football player for the Geelong Football Club.


Since 2001, Kelly has played with the Geelong Football Club. Playing as a fourth-string midfielder in the powerful midfield, he has shown capability in gaining many possessions and running well, as well as showing courage, but consistency is sometimes an issue, with many possessions being costly turnovers, also known as clangers.

He was a member of Geelong's 2006 NAB Cup Premiership team, as well as the drought-breaking 2007 AFL Premiership Team.
