Fremantle forward Lachie Schultz has inked a two-year contract extension at Fremantle that will see him at the Club until at least the end of the 2023 season.
The exciting small forward kicked 22 goals from 20 games in 2021, the second most for Fremantle.
He kicked multiple goals on seven occasions against GWS (3), Adelaide (2), North Melbourne (4), Sydney (2), Collingwood (3), Richmond (2) and West Coast (2), with Fremantle winning all of those games.
Drafted at no.57 in the 2018 NAB AFL National Draft, Schultz has played 44 games for Fremantle in his three seasons at the Club.
Executive general manager of football operations Peter Bell said the 23-year-old would continue to play an important role in Fremantle’s forward line.
“We’re very pleased to have Lachie commit to Fremantle for a further two seasons, he had a great year with 22 goals, continuing his growth since he arrived at Fremantle ahead of the 2019 season,” Bell said.
“We were particularly impressed with his ability to work and fit in with our forward structure, as well as his efforts defensively.
“Lachie has also selflessly agreed to remain on the rookie list as a part of his two-year contract extension, which allows us the opportunity to bring in another player onto our senior list during the upcoming draft and trade periods.”
