AFL young gun Noah Anderson extends contract with SUNS

Midfielder Noah Anderson has become the latest Gold Coast young gun to commit to his future at the SUNS.

The number 2 draft pick from last year has signed a two-year contract extension with the Gold Coast to the end of the 2023 season.

The 19-year-old has played every game in his debut season and said he couldnt be more excited to remain on the coast for the next three years.


“It was a pretty easy decision,” Anderson said.

“We’ve got a pretty young group up here and I’m already really close with a lot of the boys.

“It’s really exciting what we’re trying to build as a football club on the Coast and I really like the brand of football we’re trying to play.”

Anderson is among an exciting group of young players, including best mate Matt Rowell, who are signing on for the future.

“It just shows that boys are ready to commit themselves to the club and trust what we’re doing here so it’s a really promising sign,” Anderson said.

“The group’s been so good and it’s been really easy to slot in. I’ve loved every moment of it, it feels like home.”

Suns GM of Football Operations Jon Haines said the re-signing of the teen, who earned a Rising Star nomination in round 7, was a fantastic result.

“Noah is a humble and respectful young man from a wonderful family and he has already had a significant impact on the football club,” Haines said.

“Noah’s commitment is further endorsement of the group’s commitment to one other and the belief that is evident in the football strategy.”
