Aussie Rules: Scrimshaw pens Hawks contract

Hawthorn defender Jack Scrimshaw has declared his love for the club after penning a two-year contract extension with the Hawks.

Hawthorn are priced at 66/1 to win the AFL grand final and will be looking to climb the ladder in the new season as the rebuild continues.

Hawks love

The 23-year-old arrived at Hawthorn from the Gold Coast Suns at the end of the 2018 season and has gone on to cement his place in the side.

Scrimshaw had a career-best season in 2021 when averaging 20.6 disposals and 6.4 marks per game during his 20 appearances so it is no surprise the Hawks have moved quickly to tie him down.

Scrimshaw will now stay on board until at least the end of the 2024 season and he could not hide his delight after the deal was announced.

"I absolutely love the club. Ever since I got here, the club has been more than welcoming and I've developed some really strong relationships," he told the club's website. "I'm really looking forward to seeing what the next few years holds and seeing if we can make finals."

Much deserved

Meanwhile Hawks list boss Mark McKenzie has saluted the player's performances and believes the contract extension is very much deserved.

"Last year we saw Scrim take on greater responsibility, elevating himself as a key utility who is capable of being a damaging defender yet also having the ability to move up the ground and impact," McKenzie said.

"He played every game except two, and not only did his performance improve throughout his 2021 campaign, but so did his leadership."
