Collingwood captain Scott Pendlebury has signed a five-year contract extension with the club.

The 27-year-old put pen to paper to remain at the Holden Centre until at least the end of 2020, extending his career in the black and white stripes to 15 years.

“The direction the club is taking really excites me. We have a solid group of young players who have got a taste of senior footy and we have the right program and people in place to take this group to the next level,” Pendlebury said.

“I’m proud to captain this club and want to be part of what the future holds.”
