North Melbourne’s Matt McGuinness has put pen to paper on a one-year deal, seeing him at Arden St until at least the end of 2021.

The Category B Rookie was picked up in the 2019 Rookie Draft and was the club’s second Next Generation Academy (NGA) recruit.

“Matt has shown he has potential and we will continue to work with him to develop his craft as a forward,” North GM Football Brady Rawlings told North Media.

“He worked really hard last season and showed great dedication to his training.

“We’re looking forward to seeing him in pre-season.”
