Promising North Melbourne youngster, Jy Simpkin, has penned a two-year contract extension with the Kangaroos.
Simpkin, the No.12 pick in last year’s draft, has played three games so far this season and will now be a Roo until 2020.
“The club approached my manager about doing another contract and I was all for it,” Simpkin told AFL.com.au.
“I love being at the club and it’s where I want to stay for my career, so I was stoked to have that and sign to the end of 2020, which is awesome.
“I hope I can stay there for as long as I can and help the club towards as much success as possible.”
He has averaged 10 disposals, 4.7 kicks, 2.3 tackles and kicked three goals in his three AFL matches.
