FOR young Demon Tom Sparrow, re-resigning with Melbourne was an easy decision.

The 21-year-old put pen to paper on Thursday morning, sealing his spot in the red and blue for a further two years.  

“I’m pretty pumped to be hanging around for the next few years,” Sparrow told Melbourne Media.

“I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else.

“It’s an exciting time for the club and I’ve got some really great players and staff to surround myself with.

“And I think I speak on behalf of the rest of the group when I say we’ve got trust in our staff, our coaches and each other.”

Reflecting on the recent achievements of the club, the Demon explained his excitement for what the team has to offer and their opportunity to create further success in the 2022 Toyota AFL Season. 

“I think the potential of the group is exciting,” Sparrow said.

“And I’m really looking forward to seeing how far we can go.

“Obviously for myself, I want to keep improving to be the best player I can be, and it helps when you have some of the best players in the league around you.

“You’ve got Christian Petracca, Clayton Oliver, Jack Viney who are all elite midfielders and I think they can really help me become better.”

The Demons' 2022 campaign started in style on Wednesday, with Sparrow and the team securing a Round 1 win over the Western Bulldogs.

Playing in front of Melbourne-based fans at their spiritual home, the No.32 said it was particularly special as it was his first time playing in front of a large crowd at the 'G. 

“It was great, it was particularly nice being back at the MCG in front of all our fans.

“I’m glad they got to experience that and the flag unfurling at the beginning of the game.

“It was just a great night and we topped it off with a good result in the end.”
