Sam Day extends contract with Gold Coast Suns

Sam Day has extended his contract with the Gold Coast Suns, committing through to the end of the 2021 season.

The inaugural Sun joined the side with the third pick in the 2010 draft.

He’s played 115 games throughout his nine years, after debuting in 2011, and says he’s excited to play with the group the club now has.


“As one of the original Suns I’m really excited to extend my contract with the club.

“We’ve got a great family here on the coast and there’s a lot of hard work ahead of us but we’re up for the challenge.

“I can’t wait to keep going forward with this group, there is exciting things to come,” Day said.

General Manager Football Operations, Jon Haines, says he’s pleased Day can see the future direction of the club.

“It’s great to have a player of Sam’s ability and character commit to the club.

“He’s been an integral member of the team since our inaugural season and will continue to form an important part of the future of our football club.” Haines said.

Day joins a raft of core players to re-sign with the club this season including leadership group members, David Swallow, Jarrod Witts, Touk Miller and Alex Sexton as well as Rory Thompson, Peter Wright, Ben Ainsworth, Jack Bowes and Izak Rankine.

He’ll run on for his sixth game of the season this Sunday – returning from a shoulder injury – when the Suns take on the Bombers.
