The dual All-Australian signed a three-year contract extension, following the lead of captain Travis Boak and best and fairest Robbie Gray.

Wingard, 22, kicked 53 goals in 22 games this year.

“There is such a great feeling among the players and the club in general, I couldn’t imagine being anywhere else,” he said in a club statement.

“Family is everything to me and the boys are like my second family.”

He also spoke highly of “the work the club is doing with our Aboriginal and community programs”.

“I’m looking forward to continuing to work with all the boys in growing that in the years to come,” he said.

Coach Ken Hinkley enthused about Wingard’s potential, saying: “Chad has already reached a high standard on the field in his first few seasons and I look forward to him raising that bar further in the years ahead.”
