GWS Giants coach Leon Cameron has inked a two-year contract extension with the club.

The deal was agreed to at the start of the season but has now been officially signed off.

Coming off a grand final appearance last year, the Giants have disappointed so far in 2020, currently sitting ninth on the ladder.

But that hasn’t stopped the club from recommitting to their coach, locking Cameron away until the end of the 2022 season.

“We committed to extending Leon at the start of this year and having worked through changing industry dynamics, we are pleased to have completed an agreement,” Giants CEO Dave Matthews told the club website.

GWS Head of Football Jason McCartney said Cameron was the man to take the club forward.

“Leon is an outstanding coach who has led this club to victories in the last four finals series as well as our maiden Grand Final appearance,” McCartney said.

“Leon has been central to building the strong culture of the GIANTS which has grown rapidly both on and off-field under his guidance.

“Given his success and the relationships he’s formed since arriving at the club at the end of 2012, we are delighted to extend his contract for a further two seasons.”

GWS could move back into the top eight this week if they defeat Carlton at Metricon Stadium on Thursday night at 7.10pm AEST.
