Curtis Taylor has re-committed to North Melbourne after signing to a new two-year contract.
The deal will see the 20-year-old remain at Arden St until at least the end of 2022.
Selected with pick 46 in the 2018 Draft, Taylor played two games in his debut season and moved to cement his spot in the side this year playing every game before injuring his knee in Round 9.
The number 31 was rewarded for his standout performances picking up a Rising Star nomination in Round 5 after he collected 13 disposals and 2 goals.
North GM football Brady Rawlings said Taylor is an important part of the Kangaroos’ plans going forward.
“Taylor is an important player for our future and what we’re striving to build here at the club,” Rawlings told North Media.
“We really believe in our young stars and the influence they have on our club and the way we want to play.
“He has shown that he is more than capable of not just playing at the top level, but impacting the game and the potential for an exciting future.
“He has shown great maturity in what has been a tough season and we see a great future with Curtis combining with the likes of other up and coming youngsters such as Jy Simpkin, Tarryn Thomas, Luke Davies-Uniacke, Nick Larkey, Aiden Bonar, Bailey Scott, Cam Zurhaar, Tristan Xerri, Jack Mahony and Flynn Perez.”
Taylor has averaged 10 disposals and kicked 5 goals this season.
