In more good news for Melbourne fans, premiership star Jake Bowey has signed a new contract to keep him at the club for the foreseeable future.

Bowey, who managed to pick up a premiership medal despite only making his debut in Round 20 against Gold Coast, put pen to paper on a new deal to see him through until the end of season 2024.

The small defender was taken at Pick 21 in the 2020 National Draft and still has not lost a game of AFL footy with his side being so dominant in the closing stages of season 2021.

Speaking to Melbourne Media, list manager Tim Lamb exclaimed his delight at being able to tie down one of the club's most promising players.

“We are really pleased that Jake has signed on for a further two seasons. He is obviously a young player, but has shown terrific signs in his first season,” Lamb said.

“We are confident he is going to become a really strong contributor for the Melbourne Football Club, and we look forward to seeing him continue to develop in the future.”

Bowey joins a number of Demons who have earned contract extensions in the wake of the club's triumphant 2021 grand final win at Optus Stadium.

Six-goal hero Bayley Fritsch, Harrison Petty, Michael Hibberd and Kade Chandler have all signed new deals with the club seeming to go from strength to strength.

Throw in a successful national draft outing where they secured key tall Jacob van Rooyen, Blake Howes and father-son prospect Taj Woewodin and the Dees seem to be more than set for the future.
