Sam Darcy will continue to call VU Whitten Oval home for the next two years. 

The emerging youngster and third generation Bulldog inked a contract extension this week, keeping him in the red, white and blue until at least the end of 2025.

Darcy made his senior debut in round 21 last season, showcasing plenty of skill and versatility during the latter part of the Bulldogs campaign. 

With an ability to play at either end of the ground and even rotate through the ruck, the 208cm tall is a valuable asset to the Dogs’ future. 

Darcy said he couldn’t be happier to remain a Bulldog. 


“My immediate feeling is I am just super excited to sign with the Club, I can’t wait to see what the future holds,” Darcy said

“It’s pretty special having rich family history with Dad and Grandpa playing here. I’m really proud to follow in their footsteps and represent the Dogs.”

“It was awesome to get a taste of senior football in my first year, particularly with that final, I was definitely pinching myself with the crowd and atmosphere.”

“Everyone at the club has been amazing from the coaching staff through to all the players, allowing me to be the best player I can be and help the team succeed wherever I can.” 

Bulldogs General Manager of List and Recruiting, Sam Power, said it was pleasing to secure Darcy’s signature. 

“Sam has been a fantastic addition to our football club over the past 12 months and we couldn’t be happier to retain him for two more seasons.” Power said. 

“His versatility, courage in the air and ability to compete have been key attributes in the beginning of his football journey, showing the capabilities Sam has at either end of the ground.”

“Sam has a real hunger to learn and get the best out of himself, making him a popular member of the playing group, while his passion for the red, white and blue is evident given his strong family ties to the club.”

“While Sam still has so much growth and development in his game, our fans and members should be excited about what he can deliver in the future.”

Darcy joins Ryan Gardner (three-year deal) as recently re-signed Bulldogs.
