Lycett an Eagle for Four More Years
West Coast has locked in one of its most impressive young players, with Scott Lycett signing a new contract.
The Eagles announced the new deals on Monday afternoon, but not before Lycett had announced his news via his Instagram account.
The 21-year-old ruckman jumped the gun, announcing his excitement at signing a four-year contract extension.
There had been mounting speculation this season surrounding the future of the 21-year-old ruckman, who is from South Australia
Port Adelaide was reportedly interested in luring Lycett home.
But once veteran Eagle Dean Cox confirmed he was retiring at the end of the season, Lycett was certain to stay.
Lycett’s excitement got the better of him when he announced he had signed the deal via his Instagram account before his club got the chance to break the news.
“I have really enjoyed the opportunity to learn some of the finer points of ruck work from Nic (Naitanui) and Coxy,” Lycett told the Eagles website.
“I have said that for a long time, that it has been a unique situation to learn from two of the game’s best and I feel privileged to be in that position.
“I look forward to working with them both, with Coxy as ruck coach, to get the club to a position of power again.”
