Veteran forward Tory Dickson has signed a one-year contract extension for 2020.
The 32-year-old premiership player has kicked 181 goals across his 113-game AFL career and is renowned as one of the AFL’s most accurate set-shot exponents.
Dickson returned to fitness in 2019, playing 17 games and kicking 24 goals, including multiple goals on eight occasions.
A series of injuries had restricted him to just 17 appearances across the previous two seasons.
The experienced goal-kicker will be one of just three players on the Club’s young list aged 30-or-over at the start of 2020, alongside Easton Wood (30) and Matthew Suckling (31).

General Manager of List and Recruiting, Sam Power, said Dickson was an important signing.
“We’re really pleased to have Tory locked in for another year,” Power said.
“He’s one of the more experienced players on our list and has been a proven contributor at AFL level now for a significant period of time.
“Tory was able to bounce back this year after a couple of injury-hit seasons to play consistent football at AFL level. He provided an important avenue to goal for us throughout the year and knows how to make the most of his opportunities.
“We’re confident that he will have plenty to offer next year, complementing our emerging group of forwards.”
