Collingwood captain Scott Pendlebury has signed a one-year contract extension to remain at the club until the end of the 2021 AFL season.

Collingwood captain Scott Pendlebury will play for at least another two AFL seasons after signing a one-year contract extension.

The 32-year-old midfielder – a five-times Copeland Trophy winner as the Magpies’ best-and-fairest – said the decision to extend his deal until the end of the 2021 campaign was a simple one.

“We’ve got our list in solid shape from a talent perspective and a strong sense of purpose; what we want to do and how we want to do it,” Pendlebury said.

“I’m proud of our program and I was keen to remain involved with it.”

Pendlebury, who has played 301 AFL games, is set to surpass Tony Shaw (313) as Collingwood’s games record holder this season.

He is also poised to break Nathan Buckley’s record of 161 games as Magpies captain and Richmond legend Kevin Bartlett’s record of 200 games at the MCG.
