SOUTH-WEST export Matt Maguire’s AFL career will extend into a 14th season.

Maguire has signed a one-year contract extension with the Brisbane Lions for 2015.

The 30-year-old, who was aligned to South Warrnambool as a junior, is the only remaining former Rooster at the Gabba after the retirements of Jonathan Brown and Brent Moloney this season.

Maguire, who was part of TAC Cup side Geelong Falcons, played 13 games for the Lions in 2014, providing invaluable experience in a young back line.

Maguire has played 69 games with the Lions over the past five seasons after being recruited from St Kilda during the 2009 trade period.

He has played a total of 168 games, having made his debut with St Kilda in 2002.

Lions general manager of football operations Dean Warren said Maguire was an invaluable member.

“Matt is a fantastic personality to have around the club and the experience he brings to our young group is invaluable,” he said.

“We are really pleased that Matt will be going around again in 2015 and there is no doubt that the likes of Darcy Gardiner and Justin Clarke will benefit immensely from having someone with Matt’s experience alongside them in the back line.”
