PORT ADELAIDE midfielder Sam Powell-Pepper has agreed to terms on a contract extension which will see him remain at the club until the end of 2023.
Powell-Pepper has played all 14 games for the club in 2020, taking his career tally to 71.
Taken at pick 18 in the 2016 AFL National Draft, the 22-year-old is averaging 15 disposals, four tackles and three clearances this season, sharing his time between the midfield and forward line.
The East Perth product has agreed to terms on a three-year extension.
“It’s really exciting to be able to be part of the Port Adelaide Football Club and stay with this exciting group we’ve got,” Powell-Pepper said.
“The club has always supported me since I walked in the door in 2016 and I could not be happier to stay for at least another three years.
“The people here are like family and it feels like home. I can’t wait to see what we can achieve together this year and in the future.”
General Manager – Football, Chris Davies said the club was pleased to have Powell-Pepper recommit to the club.
“Sam has developed his consistency throughout this season and his hunt and pressure on the ball has become a real feature of his game,” he said.
“We have seen him mature both as a player and a person in recent years. Because he came straight into the team when he was drafted, we forget he is still just 22 years-old.
“We look forward to his continued growth over the next three seasons.”
