Greater Western Sydney Giants midfielder Toby Greene has put a treacherous year behind him, signing a contract extension until the end of 2018.
The 21-year-old has played 53 games for the expansion club since making his debut in 2011, and have averaged an impressive 26 disposals per game.
It hasn’t been all smooth sailing for Greene however, with the youngster fined $2500 in the Melbourne Magistrate’s Court last week after pleading guilty to unlawful assault in his role in a pub brawl.
Greene had previously been suspended by the Giants for five games and fined $5000, after failing to notify the club of the incident and drinking while injured.
Nonetheless, the former Oakleigh Charger said he had no aspirations to move elsewhere.
“It was an easy decision in the end. I didn’t have any aspirations to be playing anywhere else and it’s an exciting time coming up,” he said.
“I’ve got some of my best mates here and it’s awesome seeing them every day and we enjoy each other’s company.
“I definitely want to be around here while we’re winning and if we can get our core group of boys to sign, I think we all know we’re going somewhere and everyone is pretty keen to stay around.”
The Giants also announced on Wednesday the re-signing of 21-year-old defender Tim Golds until the end of the 2016 season.
