Allen extends his stay at the Eagles

Allen locked in until 2022 Big forward Oscar Allen extends his contract with the West Coast Eagles

West Coast Eagles young gun Oscar Allen has signed a contract extension tying him to the club until the end of 2022.

Already contracted to 2020, Allen said he was ecstatic to lock himself in at the club for a further two seasons.

“I’m really excited to sign with the club until the end of 2022. I love the club and I love the people at the club,” Allen said.

“They’ve been so welcoming of me in my first 18-months at the club and I couldn’t wait to extend.

“As a young kid, I just want to focus on playing the best footy I can and helping the club in any way possible, so to get this done was a big milestone for me.

“Now I can just try to play some good footy and help the team any way I can.”

Allen has proved his versatility across five AFL games, lining up in defence, attack and even on the wing.

The 20-year-old has booted six goals from the first three games in 2019 to solidify his position in the Eagles’ attacking arc.

“I’m feeling more and more comfortable out there every weekend,” Allen said.

“Obviously being a young kid and only playing five or so games, I’m still building confidence each game when I’m out there.

“But I’m really comfortable in terms of my relationship with the other forwards in the side and other team members.

“I’m loving the opportunity to play some senior footy.”
