North Melbourne rising star Harry Sheezel has penned a two-year deal, locking him away at Arden Street until at least the end of 2026.

The versatile Sandringham Dragons product was snapped up with the Roos' first selection and third overall in the 2022 National draft, with North edging out a number of clubs for the 18-year-old's services.

Sheezel starred in his debut game in his new blue and white stripes, allocated a role drifting off half-back where he racked up his own game-high 34 disposals, earning a Rising Star nomination for his efforts as a result.

Brady Rawlings, North Melbourne's Head of Football talent, expressed his gratitude towards Sheezel's decision to sign on with the club, following his dream debut in Round 1 of the big leagues.

“We are thrilled to have both a player and person of Harry's calibre commit to the club for a further two years,” Rawlings said.“

"Harry is clearly an exciting talent and has shown the potential to play several roles for the club, whether it's up forward, in the midfield or off half-back.“

"His debut against the Eagles was only a small preview of what Harry has to offer, and we look forward to seeing what more he is capable of as he gets more games under his belt.”

North Melbourne heads into week two of season 2023 full of confidence post their 5-point win over West Coast, and will cross the Nullarbor in search of a repeat this Saturday night against Fremantle.
