Western Bulldogs forward Sam Lloyd has signed a one-year contract extension.
The 29-year-old has been rewarded for a career-best year in his first season in red, white and blue, where he featured in all 23 matches at AFL level and led the Bulldogs’ goal-kicking tally with 38 majors.
Having joined the Bulldogs in the 2018 NAB AFL Trade Period on a two-year deal, Lloyd will now remain at VU Whitten Oval until at least the end of 2021.
General Manager of List and Recruiting, Sam Power, said Lloyd had made an immediate impact as a Bulldog.
“Sam has been a great fit for our Club and enjoyed an outstanding first season,” Power said.
“He had a significant on-field impact, playing every game and consistently hitting the scoreboard to be our leading goal-kicker in 2019.
“As an experienced player in a developing group, Sam’s leadership and ability to help guide his younger teammates has also been important.”
In a consistent 2019 season, Lloyd kicked multiple goals on 14 occasions and had 10 or more disposals in every match.
He has kicked 107 goals from 80 matches at AFL level, since making his debut for Richmond in 2014.
