North Melbourne has resigned promising midfielder Trent Dumont on a two year deal.

The 23-year-old had a break out season in 2018, highlighted by a career-high 38 disposals, 7 marks, 5 tackles and 7 inside 50s in North’s Round 23 win over St Kilda.

North Melbourne General Manager of Football Cameron Joyce said the contract extension was testament to Dumont’s hard work.

“Trent came back in terrific shape in the pre-season and went to new heights this season,” Joyce told the North Melbourne website. 

“He’s a player that flies under the radar somewhat but he is super-consistent and highly regarded here at Arden St.

“Trent transformed his body and improved his fitness dramatically and the results of that hard work was there for all to see this year.

“We’re really excited about the future for Trent and are confident he can keep improving at a rapid rate and become one of the league’s best midfielders.”

Dumont played 22 games in 2018 and 61 in total since being drafted with pick 30 in the 2013 draft.
