Adelaide forward Eddie Betts has signed a contract extension and will be playing for the Crows until 2020.

The 30-year-old has played all 69 games since joining Adelaide ahead of the 2014 season, and has led the Club’s goal kicking charts in each of the past three seasons.

Betts has achieved back-to-back All-Australian selections over the past two years and has stepped his game up another level since moving to South Australia, and the goal sneak is pleased to have secured his future with Adelaide.

“The Club is in great shape and we have such a positive environment where everyone works really hard but also knows how to make it enjoyable as well,” Betts said.

“Playing finals footy is what it is all about and after experiencing that the last couple of years I know this playing group is capable of much more.

“Everyone at the Club has been really good to me and I love our fans too. They have made my family and I feel so welcome from the first day I arrived.”

The mercurial forward has bagged 189 goals during his time in Adelaide which sees him in the top ten all-time for the club, and Betts also leads the AFL in score assists over the past 10 years.

General Manager List Management and Strategy Justin Reid said Betts is an elite player who is loved by all at the club for both his on field and off field work, with the club excited to have secured his signature for another three years.

“Everyone knows that Eddie is a special talent but he also understands and contributes to our team-first approach and culture,” Reid said.

“His durability is testament to the way he trains and prepares, and he has a clear picture of where we are heading and wants to continue on the journey.”
