Collingwood forward Jamie Elliott will remain in black and white after agreeing to a new two year contract.

Elliott confirmed his intentions with the club last night.

The 27 year-old, a two-time club leading goal kicker, became an unrestricted free agent at the close of the 2019 season.

“Understandably, as a free agent, Jamie had some thinking to do but his importance to us, his role in the team and the support of the Collingwood environment were always clear,” said Collingwood list manager, Ned Guy. 

“We share with Jamie the view that he is on the cusp of a strong new phase in his career. That his next 100 games could be better than his first 100, which were very good. We were very pleased to get last night’s call.”

Elliott has kicked 164 goals in his 105 matches for Collingwood. He finished the 2019 season with a flourish, kicking 11 goals in the last four matches of the season in which he also averaged eight marks and 17 disposals. 

Elliott is currently on leave and will return to the Holden Centre for the beginning of pre-season training in early December.
