The Swans also secured the signatures of Colin O’Riordan and Callum Sinclair for the 2022 season.

“We have a strong young group of talent coming through at the Swans, and Braeden Campbell is a key part of that. At just 19 he has shown plenty of promise and we are excited to continue working with him to further develop his skillset at the Swans.
O’Riordan is a valued presence both on and off the field at the club. Despite battling injury this year his character never wavered as an exceptional person and valued teammate, and this was evident when he was awarded the 2021 Barry Round Best Clubman. We look forward to seeing what the Irish defender can do in 2022.
Callum Sinclair has been a key member of the Swans for a number of years and we are pleased to see him remain at the club for another season. Callum played several senior games this year, while also using his experience to lead our young VFL side during another challenging season.”
