READ MORE - Pioneers proud of Docker Treacy
FORMER Bendigo Pioneers' captain Josh Treacy has had his contract extended with the Fremantle Dockers until the end of 2023.
Key forward Treacy is in his first AFL season with Fremantle after being selected by the Dockers with pick No. 7 at last year's Rookie Draft.
The 18-year-old from Cohuna has played seven games for the Dockers this season and kicked six goals, including three against the Western Bulldogs in round 12.
"Two more years in the Dockers colours is exciting... it's good to have a bit of security," Treacy told the Fremantle website this week.
"Coming in you feel the pressure that you need to perform and you need to be playing, so to have it (new contract) locked away halfway through the season is really good."
Treacy was co-captain of the Bendigo Pioneers in 2020, but didn't get to play any NAB League games last year due to the cancelled season.
"Not playing this year, it's more than just the game you miss - it's the people behind the scenes who do all the work to make sure you can get out and play and you certainly appreciate them a lot more as well," Treacy said during the 2020 season shutdown.
