Power veteran to play on

PORT Adelaide veteran Justin Westhoff will get the chance to reach the 250-game milestone after being offered a contract for 2019.

Westhoff has played 248 matches for the Power since making his debut in 2007, including the last 123 consecutively.

“I’m really happy to be sticking around for another year and hopefully building on something pretty special that I feel we have here,” Westhoff said.

“To still be playing with guys I was drafted with like Travis Boak and Robbie Gray, and to still be playing in my home state into a thirteenth year is really exciting.

“I’ve built some good relationships with people within the club, the club is in pretty good shape list-wise and I think I’m in pretty good shape personally so I’m thrilled to be able to be around a bit longer.”

Meanwhile, Sydney has delisted four players, including Dean Towers.

Towers, who played 57 games in six seasons for the Swans, including four finals, has been shown the door along with Jordan Foote, Angus Styles and Jake Brown.

“Dean, Jordan, Angus and Jake have all contributed to our club in their own ways. They worked tirelessly on their craft and depart knowing that they gave it their all,” football boss Tom Harley said.

“We wish them all the best in their future endeavours.”
