AFL 2017 Round 10 - West Coast v GWS Giants

Malcom Karpany has extended his tenure with West Coast for another year

Developing West Coast Eagles youngster Malcolm Karpany will get an opportunity to build on an encouraging start to his AFL career after signing a one-year extension with the club.

Karpany, who plays through the midfield or as a high half-forward, played six of his seven career AFL matches this year and also showed good signs when playing at East Perth this season.

He had a standout game against the Western Bulldogs in round 15, where he kicked three goals against the reigning premiers at Etihad Stadium.

West Coast Eagles general manager of football Craig Vozzo said Karpany showed plenty of improvement in season 2017.

“He has shown some good growth this year on the back of some hard work, but there’s another level that Malcolm wants to go to and the club thinks he can get to,” Vozzo said.

“He played another six AFL games this year to add to the one he played in last year. We saw some real improvement in his game during that period and we look forward to his continued growth over the pre-season and into 2018.”

The 22-year-old from Woodville-West Torrens in South Australia was originally drafted with selection 31 in the 2013 national draft.
