Veteran Crow David Mackay will enter his 13th AFL season after signing a one-year contract extension.

Mackay, 30, has put pen to paper less than a week after joining an elite group of players to have played 200 games for Adelaide.

The Victorian considers himself privileged to have played his career at the one Club.

“Adelaide has been my home for a large period of my life and my family and I could not be happier,” Mackay said.

“I am enjoying my footy as much as ever and the Club is well placed for success going forward.

“Importantly, this playing group is united and determined and I am thrilled to be part of it.”

Crows GM List Management and Strategy Justin Reid said Mackay had proven himself to be an important part of Adelaide’s line-up.

“David is a greatly respected member of our playing group and provides valuable experience and versatility,” Reid said.

“The fact that he reached the 200-game milestone is a testament to his work ethic and attention to detail with his preparation and recovery.”

Mackay was selected at pick No. 48 in the 2006 national draft.
