Western Bulldogs defender Marcus Adams has agreed to terms on a three-year contract extension, keeping him at the club until at least the end of the 2020 season.

Adams, 23, has averaged 15.5 disposals and six marks per game as a versatile key position player this season.

“We believe Marcus has a big future at the Bulldogs, and we’re thrilled to see him extend his contract,” said Bulldogs’ List Manager Jason McCartney.

“We see him as a key pillar of our defensive unit, with his athleticism and intercept marking his standout traits.  He is progressing very well. 

“Through necessity he has gone forward at times this year and has been a threat, which has added another string to his bow.

Adams has missed just one game so far in his second season at the Club, after managing 11 matches last year.

“It’s great to be able to extend my contract at the Bulldogs, and I’m looking forward to improving with every season,” Adams said.

“Last year was a great experience for me to play the games I did.  It was frustrating to deal with the injuries I had, but I took a lot out of the season.

“I want to establish myself in this team, and do whatever I can to help the team achieve success.”

Adams was taken with pick 35 in the 2015 AFL Draft, after impressing with WAFL side West Perth.
