Jarrod Witts has re-signed with the Gold Coast Suns until the end of the 2024 season.

The 26-year old was excited to secure his long-term future at the club.

“I’m so excited to have extended my contract with the club for another five years,” Witts told¬†¬†

“I cant wait to build on the hard work we’ve been putting in as a group and continue aiming towards something special here on the Gold Coast.”

The emerging ruckman has full faith in the club’s direction, saying it was a no brainer to recommit to the Suns.

“There was no hesitations at all in re-signing, as soon as I moved up to the Gold Coast, I knew I loved the club and I can see what we are all working towards,” said Witts.

“We’ve got a lot of new faces this year, both on and off field, but everyone has really come together over the last few months.”

“We’ve all put in a huge amount of work to start the pre-season and I’m looking forward to continuing that momentum as we get closer to Round 1.”

Witts added that Gold Coast fans should be bullish about what the club is building towards.

“Our members and fans should be really excited in what we’re building towards,” he said.

“There has been a significant amount of change at the club in recent times and the boys have got full confidence in the program that the club has put in place, as a supporter I’d be really excited.”

Drafted to Collingwood in 2011, Witts joined the Suns during the 2011 trade period and has registered 40 games at his new club.
