Callum Sinclair and Brad Sheppard signed two-year extensions with the Eagles.
The West Coast Eagles have continued to shore up its playing list after the club announced the re-signing of young duo Callum Sinclair and Brad Sheppard on two-year extensions.
Sinclair, who has played nine games since in two years since being elevated to the rookie list in 2013, then the senior list this season, is keen for more opportunities at the club, while Sheppard is having his best season yet since being drafted at pick 7 in 2009.
“I have enjoyed the last couple of seasons at West Coast and see an exciting future at the club,” the 24-year-old Sinclair said.
“I am keen to get more opportunities in the AFL to be part of what is building here.”
23-year-old Sheppard has played 58 AFL games since his debut against Hawthorn in 2010.
“We obviously want to finish the season as strongly as possible over the next six weeks and see where that takes us,” Sheppard said.
“But wherever we finish this year, we are confident we can build on it going forward.
“We are a young squad, but we believe we have taken some positive steps this season and we want to continue to build momentum.”
Eagles football manager Craig Vozzo says both players are important for the club’s on-field future.
“We have great faith in both Cal and Brad and what they offer our list,” Vozzo said.
“Apart from what everyone sees in their on-field performances, they are also quality young men and are an important part of our plans.
“Both have already shown in the games they have played that they have the attributes we need to push up the ladder and we look forward to them playing their roles within the team.”
