Jack Lukosius has signed a four-year contract extension with the Gold Coast SUNS, committing until the end of 2026.
The prodigiously talented right-footer has been a driving force in the SUNS’ rapid improvement since joining the club.
Lukosius said he was eager to continue the progress that has been made with the ambition to play in a maiden finals appearance in 2022.
“I couldn’t be happier to commit for four more years at the SUNS, I’m really grateful that they’ve showed the faith in me to play here and I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else,” Lukosius said.
“It was a decision that I wanted to come to myself, I didn’t want to rush it or be influenced by anyone else. I clearly took my time and it’s one that I couldn’t be happier with.
“We’ve put in some hard work over the past few years, we’re starting to see some rewards now and I think that’s really exciting.
“The work’s not done and as we go forward into our journey we’re really hungry to make sure that we earn all the success that we get as a playing group.
“I’m just keen to get back out on the field and hopefully play my role in taking the club forward to where we want to go.”
Lukosius was drafted by the SUNS with the second selection in the 2018 NAB AFL Draft.
Into his fourth season, the 21-year-old has become an integral player with the ability to play at either end of the ground.
GC SUNS General Manager of Player Talent and Strategy Craig Cameron said Lukosius remained a key player in the club’s future over the next four years.
“We’re thrilled to have Jack locked in for the next four seasons as we continue our journey,” Cameron said.
“Jack remains an important part of our young core group of players, who along with our experienced leaders will continue to drive this club forward towards success.”
Due to return from a knee injury next week, Lukosius has played 66 AFL games for the club since making his debut in Round 1, 2019.
