Elliott commits until 2025

Jamie Elliott has signed a three-year deal that will see him remain at the Club until the end of 2025.

Turning his back on a free agency, the 29-year-old is now set to play out the remainder of his career at Collingwood.

The medium forward reached a milestone 150 AFL games on Friday night in the side’s seven-point victory against Melbourne.

Since his 2012 debut, Elliott has kicked 220 goals for the side, including his recent post-siren goal that won the game for the Pies by four points against Essendon in Round 19. A moment that will continue to be spoken about long after Elliott’s career .

Following only 13 games in 2021 due to injury, 2022 is arguably shaping up to be a career-high season for Elliott. The forward leads the Club for ground-ball gets inside 50, marks on the lead, disposals inside 50 and tackles inside 50.

Collingwood GM of Football Graham Wright congratulated Elliott.

“We’re pleased to extend Jamie for another three years, and to hopefully see him play out his career at the Club,” Wright said.

“Jamie is an instrumental figure in our program. Across 11 seasons he has a wealth of football smarts which is invaluable to the youth of our group.

“The likes of Ash Johnson, Jack Ginnivan, Beau McCreery and Ollie Henry are products of great improvement credit to Elliott’s influence in the forward line.

“In addition to this, Jamie is a player who stands up in the moments that matter, inspiring all members of our program.

“We respected the fact Jamie was a free agent at the end of this year, and we are glad to come to terms that see him at the Club until the end of 2025.”
