Fremantle have managed to keep Sean Darcy, fending off attention from rival AFL clubs. Darcy has signed a six-year contract extension with the club, tying him to the team until the end of 2030. Darcy had been a target for clubs in his home state of Victoria, particularly Geelong, and would have been a free agent next year. The 25-year-old, who missed the finals last season, is excited about the future of the club and is eager to get the season started. He is also hopeful of returning to full training in January after sustaining an ankle injury that required surgery in 2023. In addition to Darcy, the team has also signed defender Brennan Cox to a six-year contract extension, with Luke Jackson and Jye Amiss signed until 2029, showcasing the commitment of the players to the club. Meanwhile, St Kilda coach Ross Lyon is optimistic about Tim Membrey’s comeback and the potential of a productive 2024 campaign from his rejuvenated forward mix. Additionally, Max King, who underwent three rounds of shoulder surgery, is expected back in full training in January. The team is also looking forward to the return of captain Jack Steele and other players after post-season surgeries.
