Broomhead and Kennedy Extend Contracts with Pies

Two of Collingwood’s most promising talents, Tim Broomhead and Ben Kennedy have agreed to contract extensions.

Broomhead and Kennedy, both first round selections out of South Australia in the 2012 national draft, have signed deals for the 2015 and 2016 seasons.

The poised Broomhead made a mid-season debut this year after being stymied by glandular fever in 2013 and a broken hand in the NAB Cup series in February. The 20 year-old was handed his jumper in round 13 and finished the season strongly to play eight matches, kick nine goals and average 12.9 touches per match as a mid-sized forward.

Kennedy, at pick 19, preceded Broomhead in the draft by one selection – both followed fellow South Australian Brodie Grundy who was chosen with pick 18 – and was the first to earn senior selection, in 2013. Recruited to play mid-field and small forward, the 20 year-old played 12 matches in his first season and followed that with eight this year for a career total of 20.

Collingwood Director of Football, Rodney Eade, said that with their futures settled all three could now focus on developing their games and becoming regular senior players.

“There is a lot of work ahead of Tim and Ben but we’re confident that if they continue to apply themselves, as they have to date, then all three can have very good careers,” Eade said.
