Witts commits until 2024

Jarrod Witts has extended his contract with the Gold Coast SUNS in a deal that sees him commit to the club until the end of 2024.

Witts, 26, said he was thrilled about the opportunity to sign a long-term deal with the club.

“I’m so excited to have extended my contract with the club for another five years,” Witts said.
“I can’t wait to build on the hard work we’ve all been putting in as a group and continue aiming towards something special here on the Gold Coast.”

Witts said it was an easy process in making the decision to commit to the club long term.

“There were no hesitations at all in re-signing, as soon as I moved up to the Gold Coast, I knew I loved the club and I can see what we are all working towards,” said Witts.

“We’ve got a lot of new faces this year, both on and off field, but everyone has really come together over the last few months.

“We’ve all put in a huge amount of work to start the pre-season and I’m looking forward to continuing that momentum as we get closer to Round 1.”

In a strong message to SUNS members and fans, Witts was confident in the club’s direction.

“Our members and fans should be really excited in what we’re building towards,” he said.

“There has been a significant amount of change at the club in recent times and the boys have got full confidence in the program that the club has put in place, as a supporter I’d be really excited.”

After originally being drafted to Collingwood, Witts joined the SUNS as part of the 2016 NAB AFL Trade Period and has since gone on to play 40 games for the club.
