Three-time Geelong premiership player Andrew Mackie has signed a two-year contract extension with the cats.

The 31-year-old will play his 14th season next year, as Geelong begin life without some of its most important players of the past decade, after the de-listing of James Kelly, Matthew Stokes and Steve Johnson.

“This is an exciting time at the club and it’s great to be playing alongside so many talented players that are coming through,” Mackie said.

“We didn’t achieve what we hoped for this year, but the blocks are in place for more success. We are hungry to get back into the finals and I know we all feel the same way.”
