TAJ Woewodin has signed a new two-year contract with the Melbourne Football Club, keeping him in the red and blue until the end of 2025. 

Woewodin first became a Demon during the 2021 AFL Draft, joining the club where his father Shane played 138 of his 200 senior games between 1997 and 2002 and won a Brownlow medal in 2000. 


The versatile 20-year-old impressed in the VFL, winning a premiership with the Casey Demons in 2022, before being given the chance to make his senior debut last month.  

He has gone on to feature four times at AFL level, where he has averaged just shy of 10 disposals and registered two goals. 

“It’s great that Taj has extended his time with us,” List Manager Tim Lamb told Melbourne Media. 

“He is developing at a really promising rate and to have already made his senior debut is a great achievement. 


“Taj has quickly developed elite habits around his training and preparation, and it is this attitude that will see him become a really good player for us.  

“We see Taj as a big part of our future and I’m sure our members and supporters are excited to see the Woewodin name continue with our club.” 

Woewodin’s consistent contributions for Casey – he has averaged 22 touches across 10 matches this season – has resulted in several matches as an AFL emergency and ensured his name is regularly in the senior-selection mix.
