The great news keeps on rolling for Lions fans and today is no different with the signing of star forward Sam Lowson for the 2020 season.
Lowson has been quick to move on from the disappointment of last week’s AFL draft period by putting pen to paper and vowing to return to his on field best and earn another draft chance in 2020.
By re-committing to the Lions, Lowson becomes the 27th player from 2019 to re-sign with the Lions showing the club has been able to retain a larger contingent of players year on year than it has for the past 4 seasons. 2020 will also be Sam’s 4th year as a Lion and he’ll be looking to add to his current tallies of 34 games and 45 goals at VFL level.
This is a major boost to the club and General Manager Sebastian Spagnuolo said “Having Sam re-commit to our football club is a massive boost to what’s already been a very positive off season for our club.”
“Since 2017, Sam has worked hard to establish himself as a star of the competition and there’s no doubt in our minds that he is very unlucky to not be on an AFL list. He’s an absolute pleasure to work with for our coaches and is a much loved teammate and person around the club.”
“Our whole club will continue to support Sam in his dream to play AFL football but in the meantime we are very excited to see what he can produce for us in 2020 in what’s shaping to be a very exciting season.”
