Tom Lynch re-commits to Gold Coast

Gold Coast forward Tom Lynch has signed a two-year contract extension, keeping him at the club until the end of the 2018 season.

Lynch, the reigning club best and fairest winner, said he never entertained the idea of leaving the club.

“It was always my intention to re-sign with the Suns and I felt there was no better time to do it,” Lynch said.

“We’ve worked hard, especially during the last six to twelve months, to grow our leadership and shift our culture, and although the job is not done yet, there is a real sense of urgency and excitement about the future.

“We are continuing to build a culture of leadership and accountability on and off the field. Everyone involved in the club is aware of the responsibility we all have to the Gold Coast community, the AFL and our fans to perform on and off the field. We know what’s expected and we make no exceptions in holding each other to account,” he said.

Lynch has played 83 career games with the Suns since being selected with pick No.11 in the 2010 National Draft.
