Fremantle has announced that Michael Walters has re-signed with the club.

The 27-year-old has put pen to a two-year extension which will see him remain in Dockers colours until the end of the 2022 season.

Walters, who has kicked 221 goals in 129 games for Freo, was delighted to sign on with the club that selected him with Pick 53 in the 2008 National Draft.

“I’m really committed to this footy club,” Walters told

“To be a one-club player is exciting for me. I’m from WA and from Perth and I’ve been here 10 years. To have my family come to the majority of my games has been exciting for me.”

The exciting small forward/midfielder was upbeat about what is ahead for the Dockers despite the club enduring a disappointing 2018.

“Everyone knows there’s going to be a bright future with our young group,” he added.

“I think I’m in the top-five eldest players at the club now and I’ll be 28 next year. I’m very excited to be a part of it for the next four years.

“The culture here is strong as a footy club. As I keep saying, we do have a young group and the exciting part is, they can play with each other for a number of years and that chemistry is just going to get stronger.”
