Western Bulldogs midfielder Liam Picken has signed a two-year deal that will see him remain at the Club to at least the end of 2019.

The re-signing is off the back of arguably Picken’s best season in 2016, where he averaged 22 disposals and was named the Bulldogs’ best finals player.

Bulldogs List Manager Jason McCartney said the Club was delighted to have Picken commit for a further two years, particularly considering his outstanding form of late.

“Liam has been a reliable player and great teammate for such a long time with his attack on the footy and toughness.

“It’s also been great to see him complement these attributes with the growth in the offensive side to his game over the past couple of years.

“His consistency in work rate, attitude and professionalism has enabled Liam to perform very well in big games, evident throughout the 2016 finals series.”

Picken said he looked forward to remaining at the kennel for another two years.

“I was more than happy to re-sign, hopefully we’ve got some more exciting times coming up, it was an easy decision.”

Picken was the 30th selection in the 2009 rookie draft as a mature-aged recruit, he has played 180 career games.
