Report: Hawthorn defender inks fresh contract extension


Hawthorn defender Jack Scrimshaw has inked a fresh three-year contract, reports Nine’s Tom Morris.

Scrimshaw was set to come out of contract at the end of the season and no doubt would have had significant interest on the open market.

Morris says that Scrimshaw’s new deal will take him beyond the earliest point he could have become a free agent.

“Good news for Hawks fans, I can tell you this afternoon that Jack Scrimshaw has signed a fresh three-year deal in recent days,” Morris said on Nine News.

“This will keep the 25-year-old at the club until at least the end of 2027.

“Scrimshaw was out of contract at the end of this season, he would have been highly sought after on the open market.

“Interestingly, he was due to become a free agent at the end of 2026 but his new contract takes him through to a season beyond that.”

Scrimshaw is enjoying perhaps a career-best year so far down back, ranking sixth in total intercepts competition-wide in 2024.

He won’t play in Sunday’s match against Port Adelaide at the Adelaide Oval after being hit with a one-game ban for his dangerous tackle on Liam Stocker in last week’s win over St Kilda.
