Sydney Swans co-captain Josh Kennedy has signed a one-year contract extension with the club, committing until at least the end of 2022.
The 32-year old has played 257 games for Sydney (270 career games, 13 with Hawthorn) and sits seventh on the Sydney Swans all times games records list.
Since his Swans debut in 2010, Kennedy has accumulated a long list of accomplishments in the red and white which includes the 2012 Premiership, three Club Champion awards, the captaincy and All-Australian honours three times as well as finishing third in the 2014 and 2017 Brownlow Medal counts.
Kennedy said he was thrilled to be able to extend his contract with a club that has been a major part of his life.
“Walking into the club feels like I am walking in the front door of home and it’s something special and I don’t think that will ever change,” Kennedy said.
A fearless leader, Kennedy, who has continued his consistent good form in 2021, is now determined to lead the next generation of young Swans to success.
“I’m really excited about the group we have at the moment and where we can go,” Kennedy said.
“They are a really young, talented and enthusiastic group and I am enjoying getting out there and competing with them each week.
“One of my major goals is to get us back up to competing for finals and if I can be around long enough for that to happen that would make me very proud."
