Fremantle young gun Nat Fyfe has agreed to a contract extension that will see him commit to the club through to the end of the 2014 season.

General manager of player management Brad Lloyd confirmed today that the 19-year-old, who was originally contracted through to the end of the 2012 season, had agreed to a two-year contract extension.

“We regard Nat very highly both as a person and a player, and we are delighted that he has shown such a commitment to the club,” Lloyd said.

“Nat has had an outstanding start to his AFL career and we see him as being very much a part of the long-term future of the Fremantle Dockers.”

Recruited from WAFL club Claremont, Fyfe was Fremantle’s round two selection (pick 20 overall) in the 2009 NAB AFL Draft.

Originally from Lake Grace, 347kms south-east of Perth, he made his debut in round five, 2010 against Richmond and earned a NAB Rising Star nomination later that season after gathering 23 disposals in Fremantle’s win over the Sydney Swans at the SCG in round nine.

Fyfe has played 34 career games and kicked 28 goals.
