GEELONG is thrilled to announce that Cameron Guthrie has signed a four-year contract extension with the Club.
Guthrie’s new deal will see him remain a Cat until at least the end of 2025.
“The club has always given me their respect and I’ve tried to return that,” Guthrie told Cats Media on Tuesday.
“Negotiations went really well and were conducted really fairly and respectfully again so the whole process has been a good one.”
While Guthrie is delighted to sign a new deal, his focus is very much on the now and achieving team success.
“It has been bubbling away in the background which is how I wanted it to be with obviously all my focus has been on the first couple of finals we’ve played in and then moving onto this week is another big week for the club, so I’ve wanted to make it all about the team and push any individual aspects of my career to the background.”
Guthrie joined the Cats with the 23rd selection in the 2010 national draft and has played 204 AFL games for the Club. After starting out his career in the backline he has transformed into one of the competition’s most consistent midfielders averaging 29 disposals and five clearances per game this season. Guthrie won his first Carji Greeves Medal in 2020 and was also named in the All Australian team that season.
Geelong will play its 11th preliminary final in the past 15 seasons when it takes on Melbourne this Friday night at Optus Stadium from 7.50pm AEST.
