Ruckman Tim English is the latest Western Bulldogs player to put pen to paper, signing a two-year contract extension this week.

The West Australian will remain at the kennel until at least the end of 2020, an extension on his existing two-year draftee contract

Bulldogs List Manager Jason McCartney said the Club was pleased to retain the 19-year-old’s services.

“Tim was a highly-touted junior ruckman and we’ve been extremely impressed with his first six months at the Club.

“Not only has Tim settled in well and applied himself to his training, but he’s showed strong signs throughout the pre-season and demonstrates terrific attributes for a modern-day ruckman.”

English said he looked forward to continuing his development at the Bulldogs.

“It’s a huge thing the Club’s shown faith in me to firstly pick me in the draft, then to extend the contract.

“The Club’s been really welcoming and I’m looking to develop those relationships further.

“It does give you a little bit of confidence they see that your development is tracking pretty well… I’m just really looking forward (to the next few years).”

English was the Bulldogs first pick in the 2016 NAB AFL National Draft at number 19, recruited from the South Fremantle Football Club.
