Former South Clare junior Riley Knight has put pen to paper on a new two-year contract extension.

Clare boy Riley Knight has been rewarded for his strong AFL form by signing a two-year contract extension with the Adelaide Crows.

The 22-year-old was taken with pick 46 at the 2013 AFL Draft and is currently enjoying his best season to date in a Crows jumper.

Knight has chalked up 14 appearances in the Crows midfield so far this season after an ankle injury in 2016 limited him to just one senior game.

He said his decision to stay on for another two seasons stemmed from the faith the club has shown in him over the last four seasons.

“It has been a bit of a roller coaster ride,” he said.

“But I am just really looking forward to being able to repay the faith of (the club).

“The club is in a great position to achieve success over the next three to four years so I would love to be a part of that.”

Knight joins Jake Kelly, Alex Keath and Tom Doedee who have all signed on until the 2019 season.

Crows general manager Justin Reid said the quartet deserved their extensions.

“It’s a great reward for Riley, Jake, Alex and Tom,” Reid said.

Knight has played 26 times for the Crows and booted 20 goals.
