St Kilda midfielder Seb Ross has signed a contract extension that will keep him at the Saints until at least the end of the 2016 season.
The 21-year-old has played 27 games since he was selected at pick 25 of the 2011 National Draft.
Ross debuted in the final round of the 2012 season, before going on to play 13 matches in 2013 and a further 13 in 2014.
The on-baller told the club’s website he was delighted to stay with the club for a further two seasons.
“I’m grateful that the club has put the faith in me so that I can put my head down, bum up, and work hard,” Ross said.
“My main focus now is to really prepare well in the off-season so I can come back in really good nick and take the next step up.”
St Kilda coach Alan Richardson said Ross’ athleticism made him a key asset to the Saints.
“Seb has the potential to be a very good inside midfielder,” Richardson said.
“He has a strong body and finds the footy.”
Richardson added that his endurance would improve even further over the off-season.
“Seb’s running and endurance is improving almost on a weekly basis.
“We expect him to have a big summer and be even fitter ahead of the 2015 season.”
