One of the GIANTS’ biggest stars has recommitted to the club long term with Bec Beeson signing a new four-year deal.
Beeson, 26, will remain in orange and charcoal until at least the end of the 2027 NAB AFLW season.
The gun midfielder’s signature comes on the back of a brilliant return to the field in 2023 after overcoming ongoing concussion issues.
Establishing herself as one of the club’s brightest young stars since being taken with pick 32 in the AFLW’s inaugural draft in 2016, Beeson claimed the 2019 Gabrielle Trainor Medal as club champion and has continued to be one of the GIANTS’ key players ever since.
Hailing from the UNSW-ES Bulldogs in Sydney, Beeson missed the entirety of season seven through concussion issues but returned to the field with a bang last season to finish third in the Gabrielle Trainor Medal.
Combining time through the midfield and half forward, the inaugural GIANT finished a stellar season averaging almost 18 touches to go along with three marks and four tackles a game.
A key member of the club’s leadership group, Beeson’s new deal sees her join a growing list of GIANTS to commit to a future in orange and charcoal, with superstars Alyce Parker and Zarlie Goldsworthy highlighting several recent re-signings at the club.
GIANTS Executive General Manager - Football Strategy and Operations, Briana Harvey, said the club is thrilled to have one of its key leaders recommit.
“First and foremost, it’s been great to see Bec healthy and playing footy again and we’re delighted that she will be a GIANT for at least four more years,” Harvey said.
“Bec made an amazing return to the field last season to finish in the top handful of the Gabrielle Trainor Medal and we can’t wait to see her continue that form in 2024.
“She’s a past winner of the Gabrielle Trainor Medal and we’re super excited to see what she can produce this year and beyond as we feel her best football is still to come.”
