Fresh off a career-high 32 disposals against North Melbourne on Sunday, Geelong Premiership player Gryan Miers has inked a new three-year contract extension with the Club, which will see him remain in the Hoops until at least the end of 2026.
The 24-year-old, who plays his 100th AFL game against Essendon on Saturday night, has enjoyed a career-best season in 2023, averaging 19.25 disposals and 1.75 goal assists per game in 2023.
This season, Miers’ role in Geelong’s forward line mix has come into the spotlight, with a league-leading 28 goal assists whilst also sitting in the top 10 for score involvements with 110.
Renowned for his unique, effective kicking style, Miers has become one of the Cats’ most consistent performers this year.
A local Grovedale product, Miers was recruited out of the Geelong Falcons under 18’s program with Pick 57 in the 2017 AFL National Draft.
After an impressive draft year which included a league-leading 50-goal season, a Premiership and an incredible seven goals in the Grand Final, Miers made his debut in Round 1, 2019 against Collingwood.
Miers played 53 consecutive games after debuting before fibula fractures interrupted his 2021 season.
Despite a delayed start to his 2022 campaign due to a syndesmosis injury, Miers managed to build form and consistency throughout the season and was deservedly rewarded with his first AFL Premiership last season.
Geelong Cats Head of List Management Andrew Mackie said the Club was thrilled to see Miers commit for another three years.
“Gryan is part of a very exciting, hard-working and talented group of young players coming through our AFL program,” Mackie said.
“Gryan has proven to be a very important player in our attacking half of the ground, he is a selfless footballer and a player who creates plenty of scoring opportunities. We are very pleased that he will be with us for at least the next three years.”
