Port Adelaide forward Jed McEntee has penned a new two-year extension to now be tied to the Power until the end of the 2025 season.

A Mid-Season Draft recruit from 2021, McEntee debuted at the back end of his season against St Kilda as the medical sub.

McEntee has enjoyed a breakout year at senior level in 2023, playing 13 of his 23 career games to boot 11 goals under Ken Hinkley this year.

The 22-year-old's form across this year has earned him a new contract at Alberton, with the Sturt product expressing his delight in extending his career.

“I'm very excited to be part of this group and to have this opportunity,” McEntee said of his new contract.

“In the pre-season when I had a hamstring injury and then we had some new players like Junior (Rioli) and Frankie (Evans) coming in, I thought I'd struggle to get a game, so it's hard to believe I've been playing regularly.

“Ken (Hinkley) and the coaches have been good at simplifying my role. It's not about the touches or the goals, it's about applying the pressure and helping the team, and hopefully I can keep doing that.”

Port Adelaide list manager Jason Cripps said McEntee's extension was a reward following his emergence as a key role player at the club.

“Jed is a real success story for the mid-season draft and his contract extension is a credit to the work he has put in since coming to our club,” Cripps said.

“While he is quiet and unassuming off the field, he is a highly valued teammate through the pressure he puts on the opposition and the team-first acts he consistently produces that may not be recognised externally.”

After featuring for the Power in Round 17 against the Suns, McEntee is in line to face Carlton at Marvel Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
