The Bombers are thrilled to announce versatile midfielder Kyle Langford has agreed to a new four-year contract, keeping him at the club until the end of 2026.
Since making his debut in 2015, Langford has established himself as an integral part of the Bombers’ line-up, with the 25-year-old having the ability to rotate through the midfield and forward line.
Throughout his 99 games, Langford has kicked 67 goals and averaged 16.7 disposals, 8.9 kicks and 4.2 marks per game.
Although he has only briefly featured in this year’s campaign after suffering a hamstring injury, Langford’s past two seasons demonstrated his ability with back-to-back top-10 finishes in the Crichton Medal.
In 2021, Langford was named the Bruce Heymanson Best Clubman for the second consecutive year, reflecting the positive impact his leadership and guidance have on the broader club.
Langford said he was thrilled to remain in the red and black for at least the next four years.
“I’ve had the opportunity to work with our coaching group this season while I’ve been on the sidelines and one thing that has been clear to me is the hunger across the board to take this group forward,” Langford said.
“Although the wins aren’t falling our way at the moment, I can see so much potential in our team - that includes the playing group, coaches and staff - and I really believe in the direction we’re heading.
“It’s exciting to be a part of that journey for at least the next four years.”
General manager of list and recruiting Adrian Dodoro said Langford was a key part of the Bombers’ future.
“Kyle’s versatility and work rate is a key strength of his, which is evident in the clear improvement in his game over the past two seasons,” Dodoro said.
“His leadership on and off the field is excellent and will be key to the club’s future success with our developing playing group in years to come.”
