Bulldogs utility Dom Bedendo will continue his career in the red, white and blue after signing a one-year contract extension tying him to the Club until the end of the 2024 season.

Injury prevented the 21-year-old from adding to his two games in 2022, after being selected at Pick 55 in the 2020 National Draft from the Murray Bushrangers.

The youngster made his debut against the Lions in Round 16, 2022.

Bulldogs General Manager of List and Recruiting Sam Power was pleased for Bedendo to remain at the Club.

“Dom hasn’t had much luck with injury over the past 12 months, but we feel he’s got real growth in his game heading into 2024,” Power said.

“He has shown glimpses throughout his games at VFL and AFL level and will benefit from a full pre-season, beginning in November.

“Dom’s athletic traits and ability to compete in the air will hold him in good stead as he aims for more regular football next season.”

Bedendo’s re-signing completes the Bulldogs on-field changes in the lead up to the National and Rookie Drafts in late November.
