North Melbourne young gun Harry Sheezel will remain in the royal blue and white until at least the end of 2030 after signing a four-year contract extension.

Sheezel was already contracted until the end of 2026 but moved quickly to extend his time at Arden Street. 

His decision to commit to the club long-term follows a remarkable debut campaign in 2023, which saw the 19-year-old crowned the AFL Rising Star and the club's Syd Barker medallist


Taken with pick No.3 in the 2022 Draft, he featured in all 23 games and was a key distributor for the Roos off half-back with his class, temperament, and skill, including 30-plus disposals on 12 occasions. 

Sheezel, who also joined the side's leadership group this year, said he was grateful for the opportunity to be a North Melbourne player for several years to come. 


"I am very excited and very grateful as well for the club for giving me the opportunity to sign on for that long," he said. 

I love the club and wouldn’t want to go anywhere else.

"Ever since I walked in the door, I’ve just loved the place – the players, the coaching staff and just the whole environment at the club. They’ve made me and my family feel so welcome."

North Melbourne head of football talent Brady Rawlings said the club was excited to secure Sheezel’s services long-term. 

"We’re absolutely rapt to have a player and person of Harry’s calibre sign on until at least the end of 2030," he said.

"We’ve loved what we’ve seen from him so far, and at 19, he’s only scratched the surface of what he’s capable of."

"His decision to join the likes of Jy Simpkin and Nick Larkey in committing to the club long-term is a great show of confidence in the future of the club, and we can’t wait to see what the next seven years hold with him here."
