Sam Darcy has inked a new two-year deal with the Bulldogs, committing to the club until at least the end of the 2025 season.
The young Bulldog made his AFL debut in Round 21 last season, going on to play four games in his debut year at the club.
Heading into his sophomore season at the kennel, Darcy looms as a vital cog in the Bulldogs' 2023 campaign with his ability to play at both ends of the ground.
The 208cm father-son Dog said he was "excited" about remaining at the club for a further two years.
“My immediate feeling is I am just super excited to sign with the Club, I can't wait to see what the future holds,” Darcy said
“It's pretty special having rich family history with Dad and Grandpa playing here. I'm really proud to follow in their footsteps and represent the Dogs.”
“It was awesome to get a taste of senior football in my first year, particularly with that final, I was definitely pinching myself with the crowd and atmosphere.”
“Everyone at the club has been amazing from the coaching staff through to all the players, allowing me to be the best player I can be and help the team succeed wherever I can.”
General Manager of List and Recruiting at the Dogs, Sam Power, said the club was thrilled to re-sign the young prospect ahead of the season kicking off.
“Sam has been a fantastic addition to our football club over the past 12 months and we couldn't be happier to retain him for two more seasons.” Power said.
“His versatility, courage in the air and ability to compete have been key attributes in the beginning of his football journey, showing the capabilities Sam has at either end of the ground.”
“Sam has a real hunger to learn and get the best out of himself, making him a popular member of the playing group, while his passion for the red, white and blue is evident given his strong family ties to the club.”
“While Sam still has so much growth and development in his game, our fans and members should be excited about what he can deliver in the future.”
The Bulldogs will begin their season on Saturday, March 18 against Melbourne at the MCG.
