Young Bomber Mason Redman signs two-year contract extension

Essendon Football Club has re-signed youngster Mason Redman for a further two years until the end of 2019.

Redman was recruited from Glenelg in South Australia and picked up by the Bombers with the 30th overall pick in the 2015 National Draft.

“I am really honoured to have made my debut with Essendon earlier this year and to be able to continue my career until 2019,” Redman said.

“I feel we have a really strong group of young players coming through, we have a number of quality players returning and I am really excited about what we can achieve together over the next few years.”

Redman made his debut in Round 7 against Sydney Swans at the Sydney Cricket Ground. The 18 year-old has played three AFL games this season as well as making a strong impact in the Club’s VFL team.
