Dual Bob Skilton medallist Jake Lloyd has signed a new three-year contract extension with the Sydney Swans, keeping him at the club until at least the end of 2025.
Lloyd, who brought up his 200th game milestone in the grand final, extends his time in the Harbour City after playing 24 games in 2022, averaging 24 disposals.
The 29-year-old was originally taken in the 2013 Rookie Draft and quickly made his mark at the Swans, making his debut against Fremantle in 2014 and earning a Rising Star nomination that season.
He won the 2018 and 2020 Bob Skilton Medal as the Sydney Swans Club Champion and was the fastest ever Swan to reach the 150-game milestone.
“The club took a chance on me as a young kid ten years ago and to be signed on for another three years, me and my family are stoked,” Lloyd said
“To be a one club player for the Swans means a lot, the opportunity they gave me as a young kid to fulfil my dreams at the elite level, it really does mean a lot.”
“We’ve got such a young and exciting group I’m really looking forward to what’s ahead for such a good group.”
Sydney Swans Executive General Manager – Football, Charlie Gardiner, said the club is delighted that the ultra-consistent Lloyd has committed to Sydney for a further three years.
“Jake is a highly respected player and has been a key component of our team for a long period of time. He is an ultimate professional and sees the game as well as any player in the competition,” Gardiner said.
“Jake has shown remarkable consistency throughout his career and will continue to play an integral role in the development and success of our team in the coming years.”
