PORT ADELAIDE midfielder Travis Boak has extended his tenure with the club after agreeing to terms on a two-year contract extension.
Boak is the club’s reigning John Cahill Medallist after a 2019 season in which he played 21 games and averaged 30 disposals and seven clearances.
The 31-year-old is third on the all-time list for AFL games played for the club with 264 in his 13 seasons so far.
The midfielder is a two-time best and fairest winner and was named in the All-Australian side in 2013 and 2014.
His re-signing will see him stay at the club until the end of 2022 and comes just days after Robbie Gray recommitted to the club until the end of 2021.
“Port Adelaide is special to me, as it is to so many other people, and I couldn’t be happier to get the chance to continue to play footy here for the next couple of years,” Boak said.
“It’s an exciting time at the club and we have a seriously talented group that I am eager to stay a part of.
“I can’t wait to see what we can achieve together.”
Port Adelaide General Manager – Football, Chris Davies, was pleased to retain Boak’s services.
“The way Travis prepares himself is an inspiration to those around him. He is the ultimate professional,” Davies said.
“He had a wonderful 2019 season and is in great shape to attack this coming season. Having someone of his quality as both a player and person will be important in our success.”
Boak arrived at Port Adelaide in the 2006 AFL National Draft and was named captain in 2013.
He stepped down after six seasons at the end of 2018 but holds the honour of being the club’s longest serving AFL captain.
