Lake Grace product Nat Fyfe has re-signed with the Fremantle Dockers for six years after putting pen to paper on Monday morning.

The 25-year-old was taken with pick No.20 at the 2009 national draft and has since played 132 games for the club.

Fyfe said he was excited about the future at the Dockers.

“I really love playing for the club and I’m really grateful and humbled to have the opportunity to be here for the next six years,” he said.

“Fremantle are really in a great position to have the new facility at Cockburn as well as playing at the new Perth Stadium. I think we’ve got a group who are really willing to learn and aren’t interested in waiting around for their careers to follow a natural trajectory.” The 2015 Brownlow medallist will now play through until the end of the 2023 season, ending months of speculation regarding his future.

Dockers general manager of list management Brad Lloyd said the club was rapt to have signed the services of their captain.

“We’re absolutely thrilled as a football club to get this long-term commitment from Nat,” he said.

“It was very clear throughout the process that Nat was firmly committed to staying at Fremantle.”
