The Sharks can announce that Shane Flanagan has signed a new three year agreement with the club, one which will see him extend his current contract through to the end of the 2019 season.

Flanagan, who was already committed to the Sharks for 2017, finalised the new two-year extension in the company of Group CEO Lyall Gorman and Club Chairman Damian Keogh earlier today.

Now into his sixth season in charge, Flanagan was pleased and proud to be able to announce the contract extension.

“The new contract and that I’ll be here another couple of years is reassuring but the club is heading in a great direction and I’m proud to be a part of it,” Flanagan said.

“We’ve had a successful season so far this year, but there is a lot of footy left to be played.”

CEO Lyall Gorman was firm in his belief the Club had the right man to drive the Sharks into the future.

“Strong football clubs have great leadership at all levels and Shane epitomises that,” Gorman began. “He’s driven very hard the football component of our business and he’s been an incredible asset for our club.

“He’s a wonderful fit for our culture.”
