Veteran Bulldogs forward Tory Dickson has signed a one-year contract extension for the 2020 season.

The 32-year-old premiership player has kicked 181 goals across his 113-game AFL career and is renowned as one of the AFL’s most accurate set-shot exponents.

Dickson had been riddled by injuries in the two seasons prior to 2019, featuring in just 17 games which he achieved this season where he booted 24 goals, including multiple goals on eight occasions.

General Manager of List and Recruiting at the Western Bulldogs, Sam Power, said Dickson was an important signing.

“We’re really pleased to have Tory locked in for another year,” Power told westernbulldogs.com.au.

“He’s one of the more experienced players on our list and has been a proven contributor at AFL level now for a significant period of time.

“Tory was able to bounce back this year after a couple of injury-hit seasons to play consistent football at AFL level. He provided an important avenue to goal for us throughout the year and knows how to make the most of his opportunities.

“We’re confident that he will have plenty to offer next year, complementing our emerging group of forwards.”
