North youngster earns contract extension

North Melbourne youngster Ben McKay has re-signed with the Kangaroos for a further two years.

The 18-year-old is yet to make his senior debut, however, he has shown some impressive form in the VFL in recent months.

“Ben has shown plenty of promise and now looks right at home in Werribee’s VFL side,” Kangaroos list manager Cam Joyce said.

“We believe he will play a big part in the future of this footy club and we’re looking forward to watching him improve and grow both on and off the field.”

McKay was selected with pick No. 21 in the 2015 National Draft.
