Moore leads Magpies re-signings

ALL-Australian defender Darcy Moore has re-signed with Collingwood for another two seasons.

Key back Moore, talented young winger Josh Daicos and Irish defender Mark Keane have all committed to the Magpies until the end of the 2022 season.

Moore, 24, enjoyed an injury-free year to mark his best season at Collingwood in 2020, playing all but one game to snare a maiden All-Australian berth and finish fourth in the club’s best and fairest.

Meanwhile fellow former father-son selection Daicos, 21, had a breakout season, averaging 17.3 disposals while also booting 10 goals in 18 games – more matches than he’d played in his first three seasons combined.

Key defender Keane, 20, made his AFL debut against Fremantle in round nine.

“Clearly, given the ages of all three players, there is significant upside,” Magpies list manager Ned Guy said.

“Even for someone like Darcy, who is now an All-Australian, his peak years are ahead and with Josh and Mark they have so much scope to develop.

“We expect all of them to be important to Collingwood for many years to come.”

The Magpies still have some work to do on the re-signing front, with out-of-contract goalkickers Jordan de Goey and Brody Mihocek yet to commit.
