St Kilda captain Nick Riewoldt has signed a contract extension with the club taking him until the end of the 2016 season.
The 32-year-old enjoyed a stellar season, kicking 49 goals on his way to record sixth Trevor Barker award.
Riewoldt was already contracted until the end of the 2015 season, however he took another step to becoming a one-club player after extending his AFL career.
The Saints skipper has played 281 games for the club since making his debut in 2001, and club coach Alan Richardson says his on and off-field influence made him a vital figure.
“Nick’s re-signing is fantastic for our football club,” Richardson told the club’s website.
“He sets a tremendous example to our young players on how to prepare for AFL football. His commitment to leave a strong legacy, that he’s carried on from the likes of Robert Harvey and Nathan Burke in the early 2000s, is a credit to him.
“His personal legacy is intact, but he has this deep desire to leave one for the football club and that is why he is so widely respected both externally and internally.”
