Key forward Todd Marshall has extended his stay at Alberton, re-signing until the end of 2029 and turning his back on free agency.

Marshall was contracted until the end of this upcoming season, where he was eligible for free agency.

However, a move back home to Victoria is off the cards, with Marshall set to stay at the club where he’s booted 138 goals from 97 games.

“This club gave me my first crack at AFL and has supported me through some tough times both on and off the field,” Marshall said.

“I want to repay the club for the faith and support they’ve shown me from the day I was drafted.

“We’re building something special and very few players want to leave our club because of the culture we’ve created.

“I never considered leaving and I’m thrilled to have locked away my long-term future here at Port Adelaide.”

Port list manager Jason Cripps said he believes Marshall’s best footy is in front of him.

“We all know how important key forwards are, so to lock away Todd until the end of 2029 is very pleasing,” Cripps said.

“He has elite forward craft and his skills are excellent for a player of his size.  

“Todd continues to grow as a leader and we think his best footy is still in front of him.

“He is a very important member of our young squad moving forward so to have him commit long-term is a huge positive for the club.”
