Geelong utility Jack Henry has inked a new three-year deal to remain at Kardinia Park until the end of the 2024 season.

Henry has developed into a serviceable defender/forward utility for coach Chris Scott across his 71 career games - dating back to 2018 - cementing his place in the Cats' best 22.

The 22-year-old is currently enjoying a career-best season, recording 13.8 disposals, 4.8 marks, 2.4 inside 50's and a goal per game from his five matches in the hoops this year.

β€œI grew up across the road from GMHBA Stadium and was a huge Geelong supporter as a kid. For my childhood dream to be a reality, and now to secure my time here for another three years is amazing,” Henry said, perΒ Cats Media.Β 

β€œI’ve been enjoying trialing a few different positions as a forward, back and ruck. But clocking up some wins with my teammates is the most important thing.

β€œIt’s the best workplace you could possibly have. I want to play footy here for as long as possible, so I’m stoked.”

Henry is set to line up for Geelong on Saturday night as the Cats travel to Sydney to face the Swans at the SCG.
