Essendon is buoyant about Gleeson's future and the youngster showed why in 2014. The dashing half-back played seven of the first eight games and immediately impressed with his poise, skill and dare, despite his lean frame. His progress was restricted by a seven-week quad injury, but still managed to return for the final two games of the season. The club showed faith in Gleeson, re-signing him through to the end of 2016.
