Charlie Constable has ambitions to establish himself as a senior player and wants to do it in Geelong.
The 20-year-old was linked in the media to other clubs throughout the trade period, but that was never his intention and he is committed to succeeding in the blue and white hoops.
“I love the Cats,” Constable said.
“It was the club I wanted to go to before I got drafted and I was never intending to go anywhere else."
“I am looking forward to sticking it out here and hopefully becoming a senior player for a long time here.”
Constable played seven AFL games at the start of 2019, receiving a round two rising star nomination for his 31 disposal (13 contested) performance after playing a starring role in Geelong’s big win against Melbourne.
However, he lost his place in the side after round seven and played in the VFL for the remainder of the year.
“Playing AFL is what we all want to do, it was a lot of fun at the start of last year and I think I learnt a lot.”
“I have got to just keep improving my game and hopefully a spot pops up this year and I can hold it.”
The Sandringham Dragons junior admits that it was frustrating at times last season, but he has been working hard on improving his game and is confident that he can take his opportunity when presented in 2020.
“I just tried to go back and enjoy my footy in the VFL. I have a lot of close mates playing in the VFL team as well, so I just tried to take it in my stride as much as I could.”
“Of course, I wanted to try and get back in the team but that didn’t work out, so hopefully I can make immense this year.”
“I think we have got a really good list, and everyone is eager to learn and get better, and hopefully we can go a little bit further than last year towards the end.”
