Sydney have announced the re-singings of promising young trio Nick Blakey, James Rowbottom and Chad Warner.

Blakey and Rowbottom have both inked new deals until the end of the 2024 season, while Warner has extended his stay at Bondi until 2023.

Warner capped off a stellar start to his 2021 season on Tuesday, earning the Round 3 Rising Star nomination for his efforts in the Swans’ win over Richmond.

Speaking to Sydney Swans MediaWarner stated his gratitude to continue playing alongside an excitement group of players in Sydney.

“It’s great to be part of the Bloods culture, that’s probably the biggest thing for me,” Warner said.

“The future is really exciting with all the young boys. We are still learning and we are all like sponges, absorbing all the knowledge from people like Joey (Josh Kennedy) and Parks (Luke Parker).”

Blakey, who has played 40 matches for the Bloods since making his debut in 2019, echoed Warner’s comments in stating his exhilaration to be extending his stay with the Swans.

“To be signed on for another few years is really exciting. The first few rounds have been nice with the young boys playing key roles and the older guys showing us the way,” Blakey said.

Rowbottom is currently sidelined with a knee injury, but expressed his delight in re-signing and the positive signs the team has shown in recent weeks.

“Currently the club is going well with the combination of youth and experience so I am really excited for the future,” Rowbottom said.

“We are taking everything in our stride, week in, week out we have done a good job and I can’t wait to get back out there amongst it myself.”

The Swans will look to extend their undefeated streak to 4-0 this weekend when they face Essendon at the SCG on Thursday.
