PATRICK Dangerfield has joined Mitch Duncan in re-signing with Geelong until the end of 2024.

The 29-year-old, who has won the Cats best-and-fairest in three of his four seasons at the Cats, originally signed from Adelaide on a six-year deal in late 2015.

“Since arriving through the doors of GMHBA Stadium, Patrick’s performance both on and off the field has been exceptional. His overall commitment to the club and will to compete has been outstanding,” Geelong football boss Simon Lloyd said.

“Patrick leads by example, highly motivated to further develop himself and invest in the growth of his teammates. His ability to perform at a consistent, elite level is something our young group aspire to.

“A huge advocate for Geelong and the Surf Coast, it may come as no surprise to see him recommit to the club. We are sure he will excite our members and supporter for years to come.”

Dangerfield hasn’t disappointed in his 94 matches in the Hoops.

On top of his three Carji Greeves medals, he won the 2016 Brownlow Medal and finished runner-up in 2017 and 2019, and has been an All-Australian in each of his four seasons at GMHBA Stadium.
