Willie Mason has today signed along the dotted line for another two years with the Bulldogs. Mason's signing comes on the back of a Player's Player performance against the Raiders on Saturday and the 22 year-old says the calibre of quality young players at the Club prompted his decision to stay.
“I see a good future for myself with the Bulldogs. It's a well run club and with the group of young players coming through at the moment there's plenty of potential for success over the next couple of years,” Mason said.
“I'm hopeful of cracking into the representative level at some stage and I think being with the Bulldogs gives me the best chance to do that. I've improved heaps under Folkesy and Kevin Moore in the last year and I feel like I've still got so much more to learn.”
Mason has been with the Bulldogs for the past four years and has played 45 first grade games since making his debut in the top grade in 2000 and Bulldogs CEO Bob Hagan says the club was keen to retain a player of Mason's standing.
“You only have to take one look at him to realize Willie's quite a character and we're glad he's agreed to another two years with the Bulldogs. He's come along in leaps and bounds this year with his football and there's every indication that there's still plenty of room for improvement,” Mr Hagan said.
