GIANTS wingman Harry Perryman has signed a contract extension until the end of 2022.
Perryman has become one of the GIANTS’ most reliable players with the ability to play across the half back line as well as the midfield where he’s regularly hit the scoreboard.
The 21-year old kicked nine goals across the first four rounds to lead the Coleman Medal early in the season before playing a more defensive role late in 2020.
Perryman played 16 of a possible 17 games in 2020 to take his career tally to 52 games across four seasons.
Originally from the Riverina town of Collingullie, Perryman joined the club as pick 14 in the 2016 Draft having developed through the GIANTS Academy.
Perryman has become a fan favourite at the GIANTS for his unrelenting attack on the ball and was last week nominated for the AFLPA’s Most Courageous Player Award.
Perryman said recommitting to the GIANTS was an easy decision.
“I love the club and the culture we’ve developed so I’m glad to be here for at least another couple of years,” said Perryman.
“It’s been a challenging season this year but the future is exciting for our club and I can’t wait to get 2021 underway.”
GIANTS General Manager Football Jason McCartney said he sees a bright future for the 21-year old.
“Harry has become an integral part of our club and we’re delighted he’s re-committed his future to the GIANTS.
“He’s a tough and courageous player with terrific skills who took his game to the next level this year.
All of us at the GIANTS are looking forward to Harry continuing to grow as a player and a leader in the years to come.”
The contract extension of Perryman comes a week after fellow Academy product Jeremy Finlayson signed on until the end of 2023.
