FREMANTLE midfielder Ed Langdon will remain with the Dockers after signing on until the end of 2017.

Despite the Dockers looking at a big turnover of players in the off-season, the 20-year-old running machine said he was confident the club was heading in the right direction.

“There is a lot of good, young talent coming through and, combined with a fair bit of experience, it will stand the club in good stead for the next few years,” he said.

List manager Brad Lloyd said the club was delighted to have secured Langdon’s services for another season.

“Ed has fitted well into the club since being drafted and has shown some promising signs with his football attributes and strong running capacity,” he said.

“We look forward to seeing Ed continue to develop his football with the club.”

Langdon has played 15 games at the top level after being drafted with pick 54 in the 2014 national draft.

He debuted late in 2015 but began to find consistency with a solid 13 games in season 2016 where he averaged 16 disposals and kicked eight goals.

“I love it in Perth with the really friendly and relaxed lifestyle, the beaches and the weather help as well,” he said.

“Your first year can be a bit of a blur but in your second year you start to find your feet and get into the mould of AFL football.”

Langdon, who is preparing for Peel’s WAFL grand final clash with Subiaco, has averaged 24 disposals in the state competition and kicked nine goals.
