Bulldogs sign Sam Darcy until the end of 2025

Third-generation Western Bulldog Sam Darcy has re-signed with the AFL club for a further two years, tying him to the kennel until the end of 2025.

Darcy, whose father Luke and grandfather David both played for the Bulldogs, made his debut in round 21 last year and is already being touted as a future star.

The 19-year-old kicked three goals in four games last season, with the 208cm big also spending time in defence and rotating through the ruck.

He booted one goal from eight disposals in last year's elimination-final loss to Fremantle in Perth.

"My immediate feeling is I am just super excited to sign with the club, I can't wait to see what the future holds," Darcy said in a statement.

"It's pretty special having rich family history with dad and grandpa playing here. I'm really proud to follow in their footsteps and represent the Dogs.

"It was awesome to get a taste of senior football in my first year, particularly with that final, I was definitely pinching myself with the crowd and atmosphere."
