Premiership Player Jake Bowey has inked a new deal, which will see him remain a Melbourne player until at least the end of 2024.
The 19-year-old, who has played a total of seven career matches, made his debut in Round 20 and went onto play all remaining games of the 2021 season including Melbourne’s drought breaking Premiership.
Melbourne List Manager Tim Lamb said Jake has shown great development as a player and person in his first year in the AFL system.
“We are really pleased that Jake has signed on for a further two seasons. He is obviously a young player, but has shown terrific signs in his first season,” Lamb told Melbourne Media.
“We are confident he is going to become a really strong contributor for the Melbourne Football Club, and we look forward to seeing him continue to develop in the future.”
Bowey received a Rising Star nomination in just his third AFL game for his performance against Adelaide in Round 22.
Selected with pick No.21 in the 2020 National Draft and standing at the 175cm tall, the classy ball user from Sandringham Dragons is the son of former-Saint Brett Bowey and has the ability to play at half-forward, or push up onto the wing.
