Hawthorn has re-signed two-time premiership player Taylor Duryea to a one-year deal that will keep him at the club until the end of 2018.

Taken at pick No. 69 in the 2009 National Draft, Duryea has played 101 games with the Hawks after making his debut in 2013.

Hawthorn Recruiting and List Manager Graham Wright said the club was thrilled to have retained Duryea’s services.

“Taylor’s versatility has been a real strength for the team this year, having the option of playing him at both ends of the ground,” Wright said. 

“He has matched up against some of the opposition’s best players in 2017 and really embraced the opportunity to play multiple roles.

“He is a great character around the club and we are rapt to see him continue for another season.”

Duryea averaged 14 disposals, five marks and three tackles in 15 games in 2017.
