Two-time Trevor Barker Award winner Seb Ross will remain at St Kilda for Season 2022 and beyond, putting pen to paper on a new two-year deal.

An unrestricted free agent at the beginning of Season 2021, the 28-year-old proved his versatility across a multitude of positions throughout the course of the year.

Head of List Management James Gallagher said Ross would continue to play an important role in shaping the club towards a tilt at its second premiership.

“We’re really pleased to have Seb recommit to the club,” Gallagher said.

“A lot of Seb’s work goes unnoticed externally, but inside the four walls we recognise just how important he is to our side on a number of fronts.

Seb is an honest and genuine guy, who has been a very good player for a number of years. More recently his versatility and willingness to play multiple roles for the team has become a really important aspect of his football.

“He’s played a prominent role in developing the likes of Ryan Byrnes and Jack Bytel during the past few seasons, and we have full faith he’ll continue to do that for many other young Saints.

“We look forward to seeing what Seb can produce in the coming seasons.”

Ross has placed in the top-10 of the Trevor Barker Award every year since 2016 and has assumed stand-in captain and vice-captaincy honours during his time at the club.

Ross has played 160 games for St Kilda after being selected with pick No. 25 at the 2011 National Draft.
