AFL 2017 Round 18 - Western Bulldogs v Gold Coast

Mitch Honeychurch has signed a new deal

TOUGH midfielder Mitch Honeychurch will stay at the Western Bulldogs in 2018 after signing a one-year deal.

Honeychurch, 22, received some interest from Greater Western Sydney during the NAB AFL Trade Period but ultimately opted to stay at the club that drafted him at No.60 in the 2013 NAB AFL Draft.

He managed six straight games during the season to take his career tally to 22 but was then hospitalised on multiple occasions in one week as he dealt with a facial infection.

List manager Jason McCartney told westernbulldogs.com.au Honeychurch would have played more as the Dogs pressed for a finals spot had he not suffered the untimely medical concern.

"Mitch has improved every year he's been at the club, and if it weren't for a late season injury, I've got no doubt he would have played a few more games in 2017," McCartney said.

"We look forward to seeing Mitch continue to develop as a player and as a person in our program."

The re-signing follows on from Stewart Crameri's delisting earlier on Wednesday and Travis Cloke's retirement.
