St Kilda have locked in promising midfielder Tom Curren for a further two years, taking him until at least the end of the 2016 AFL season.
Curren was selected at pick 24 in the 2011 rookie draft from the Dandenong Stingrays and spent the entire 2011 and 2012 seasons in the VFL, before making his AFL debut late in 2013.
The 22-year-old has played 23 games for the Sainrs and told the club’s website he couldn’t wait for 2015.
“I still have a lot of things I want to achieve and plenty of goals and ambitions, this is my fourth year and I can’t wait for 2015 to get started,” Curren said.
“It’s great that the club has shown some faith in me, particularly starting off as a rookie, and I’m rapt to have signed on for another year.”
St Kilda coach Alan Richardson said Curren’s professionalism was key behind his success in the opening stages of his career.
“He’s an outstanding team player with a terrific work ethic and prepares meticulously,” Richardson said.
“Tom will play as a small forward and in the midfield for us and he’s already proven that he can hold down a number of important defensive roles on very good players.”
