North Melbourne rising star Harry Sheezel has signed a two-year contract extension, tying him to the club until at least the end of 2026.

Recruited from the Sandringham Dragons with North Melbourne’s first pick and the third pick overall in the 2022 AFL national draft, Sheezel has already shown his class and versatility in just a short time at Arden St. 

The 18-year-old made his AFL debut in the Kangaroos’ season opener against the West Coast Eagles at Marvel Stadium on Saturday, after impressing coaches, teammates and fans over the pre-season.

His game-high 34-disposal performance off half-back saw him considered among the Kangaroos’ best players in the side’s thrilling five-point win and earned him the round’s AFL Rising Star nomination. 

North Melbourne head of football talent Brady Rawlings expressed the club’s excitement about Sheezel’s decision to sign on after his impressive debut.


“We are thrilled to have both a player and person of Harry’s calibre commit to the club for a further two years,” Rawlings said.

“Harry is clearly an exciting talent and has shown the potential to play several roles for the club, whether it’s up forward, in the midfield or off half-back. 

“His debut against the Eagles was only a small preview of what Harry has to offer, and we look forward to seeing what more he is capable of as he gets more games under his belt.”
