NORTH Melbourne Kangaroos’ coach Brad Scott and captain Brent Harvey have agreed to one-year extensions to their contracts with the club.

Scott and Harvey’s extension agreements were the start of a good news day for the club, with sponsors Mazda and Blades also re-signing with the Kangaroos.

Kangaroos’ chairman James Brayshaw said the announcements – especially the retention of coach and captain – indicated the club was on the right path to a successful future.

“It is a significant day for this football club and we are delighted to make these very important and exciting announcements as we continue our path towards a bright and prosperous future,” he said.

“We are very confident and pleased in Brad Scott as the leader of our club and the direction he has taken with our young side ... and we had no hesitation to extend his contract for another year.”

“Already our games record holder, Brent has showed no signs of slowing down. As captain and one of our most important players, it was vital for us to ensure he stays with us for another year.  He is a tremendous leader and his re-signing should give our players, members and sponsors a massive boost.”

Brayshaw was also delighted club sponsors Mazda and Blades had re-confirmed their loyalty to the Kangaroos.

“The loyalty Mazda has shown this football club for more than a decade has been enormous and we cannot thank it enough for its contribution and unbelievable support,” he said.

“Blades has shown an enormous level of commitment and its dedication to our club and brand has been first class.”
