St Kilda ruckman Tom Campbell will stay on at St Kilda in 2024, signing a one-year deal with the club.

The 31-year-old acts as an important figure at the Saints, playing a significant role in 2023 mentoring and helping the growth of the club's ruck department.

Campbell has played 56 AFL games, which have been spread across three clubs: the Western Bulldogs, North Melbourne and St Kilda.

St Kilda football boss David Misson said: “Tom's impact on our club has been profound."

“His recent receipt of the Best Clubman Award is testament to Tom's character and willingness to help those around him, particularly the continued development of Rowan Marshall and Max Heath.

“We look forward to seeing more from Tom both on and off the field in 2024."

Campbell said he's very grateful that his football career is still continuing and that he's remaining at the Saints for the next 12 months.

“I've loved my time at the Saints so far and look forward to what the future holds,” Campbell said.

“I'm still as passionate as ever to contribute and can't wait to get stuck into a big pre-season ahead of next year's campaign.”

Campbell's role in 2023 was the backup ruckman and assisting with the development of the ruck program at St Kilda.
