Essendon defender Conor McKenna has signed a new 4-year deal with the club.
The contract will keep the Irishman at the club until at least the end of 2021.
McKenna played 19 games for the Bombers in 2017 with his pace off the half-back line becoming a prominent feature in their top 8 season.
“Essendon has made my transition into football an easy and enjoyable one,” McKenna told the club website.
“We have a great group of players, and the strong bonds I’ve made with my teammates have helped me develop my game and drive me to want to achieve success.
“I’ve enjoyed every moment with the club and am happy I will continue to represent the club for another four years.
“I believe in our vision, we have an exciting future and over the next four years I hope we can achieve the success we are working towards.”
