Mid-way through a career-best season, young Tasmanian Chayce Jones has been rewarded with a three-year contract extension with Adelaide through to the end of 2026.

Since being drafted in 2018 Jones has showed his versatility in 69 AFL games, but this year has cemented his spot on the wing with his hard running, attack on the footy and ability to finish in front of goal.

Adelaide GM List Management and Strategy Justin Reid said the 23-year-old had become a consistent performer and an important part of Adelaide’s midfield mix.

“We’re very pleased with the progress Chayce is making,” Reid said.

“He’s shown he can play at either end of the ground and as one of our best runners, he has had a big impact on the wing this season.

“He is tough and has earnt the respect of his teammates who love playing alongside him and we’re very excited that will continue for the next three seasons at least.”

Jones said it was an easy decision for him to re-sign given the exciting future that lies ahead of the group.

“We’re heading in such a strong direction and playing some great footy and I want to continue to be part of the team that is growing together,” he said.

“I feel really settled at the Club and it’s nice to be playing some regular and consistent footy so I’m really happy to be staying on.”
