PORT ADELAIDE has signed Jasper Pittard and Sam Gray to new three and two-year contract extensions.

Pittard will remain at Alberton until at least the end of season 2020; Gray until 2019.

The pair have hit career best form in the last two seasons.

While Pittard has battled injury problems in 2017, he was a standout for the Power in 2016 and earned an All-Australian squad selection.

He also finished third in the John Cahill Medal count.

Gray has maintained his place in the Power line-up this season as dangerous small forward – marked by a career-high six goals in the club’s last game of the minor round against Gold Coast.

Port Adelaide’s head of football Chris Davies told portadelaidefc.com.au the club was pleased to secure the two signatures.

“Having been named in the 2016 All-Australian squad of 40 players, Jasper has shown he has the capability to be a significant player at AFL level,” Davies said.

“He’s had to battle injury this season but we know when he’s up and about he is an invaluable part of the group.

“We’re really pleased he has made the decision to stay for the next three seasons.

“Sam has played an extremely demanding and selfless role for the team and has done it exceptionally well this year.

“He has brought great pressure and intensity and, as we saw on the weekend, can also make an impact on the scoreboard.”
