North Melbourne’s ruck stocks have been bolstered with Tom Campbell inking a two year extension with the club.
Although he’s spent most of the year in the VFL, the 27-year-old is a proven AFL asset having played 44 games at the highest level.
“At the end of last year, I didn’t know if my AFL career was over or not, and North threw me a lifeline for which I’ll be forever grateful,” Campbell told True North.
“I’ve really enjoyed my time at Arden St and am glad to extend my stay a little longer for sure.”
Campbell made his club debut in Round 2 against the Lions, and played the following week against Hawthorn, but is still searching for his first win in the royal blue and white stripes.
Previously, he played 42 games for the Bulldogs and has an average of 9 disposals and 17 hit-outs to go along with 24 career goals. “Working with Goldy (Todd Goldstein) has been great for me. I believe we can work together more down the track and hopefully we can both fit into the senior side and form a formidable duo in the AFL.” “dynamic_sp8���.I�
