Melbourne have secured the future of small forward Charlie Spargo who has penned a new three-year contract extension with the club.
The Demons are priced at 4/7 to reach the 2022 AFL grand final and have started well when winning the opening nine games of the season.
And now they have an extra boost with the news that Spargo will be on board until at least the end of the 2025 season.
The 22-year-old has been a revelation since making his debut in 2018 and has a key role to play for at least the next few years.
“We are really pleased that Charlie has committed to the club for the next three years,” Lamb told Melbourne Media.
“Since being drafted, he has developed into a very important part of our team. He is hard working, tough, skilful and selfless, and his football intelligence is something that we see come out in his play on a weekly basis.
“We look forward to watching him continue to grow and contribute to the team over the next few seasons.”
Meanwhile Spargo also had no hesitation in penning the deal and says Melbourne is the only club for us.
“I couldn’t imagine myself playing footy anywhere else,” Spargo added. “I feel so lucky to be around really good coaches and I’ve made some really good friends over the last five years, which has gone pretty quick.
“I feel really lucky and really privileged to be in the position that I am and I’m happy that the club has shown faith in me.”
