Gold Coast young gun Noah Anderson has penned a two-year contract extension to remain with the Suns until the end of the 2023 season, per goldcoastfc.com.au.

The No.2 overall selection in the 2019 draft has thrived in his first AFL season, with the club excited to lock away his potential for the next three seasons.

Anderson, 19, said there were no second thoughts when signing for the Suns for a further two years.

“It was a pretty easy decision,” Anderson said.

“We’ve got a pretty young group up here and I’m already really close with a lot of the boys.

“It’s really exciting what we’re trying to build as a football club on the Coast and I really like the brand of football we’re trying to play.”

Anderson is one of 2020’s favourites for the Rising Star Award after collecting his nomination in round seven against Sydney.

Anderson has proven to be a strong ball winner with the Suns, highlighted by a 26 disposal effort against Richmond in round 12.

When discussing the clubs bright future, Anderson acknowledged the exciting amount of young players that surround him.

“It just shows that boys are ready to commit themselves to the club and trust what we’re doing here so it’s a really promising sign,” Anderson said.

“The group’s been so good and it’s been really easy to slot in. I’ve loved every moment of it, it feels like home.”

Gold Coast General Manager Jon Haines said the club were ecstatic to have such a promising product extend their stay.

“Noah is a humble and respectful young man from a wonderful family and he has already had a significant impact on the football club. Noah’s commitment is further endorsement of the group’s commitment to one other and the belief that is evident in the football strategy”. Haines said.
