Magpies lock in five for the future

Collingwood have signed five of their younger players to new deals in a move the AFL club says will help underpin their future.

Midfielder Dane Swan, 24, defender Tyson Goldsack, 21, and 19-year-old forward Ben Reid have all signed on until the end of 2010.

Defenders Nathan Brown, 19, and Harry O'Brien, 21, both committed to the club until the end of 2011.

"It's great to have those five boys re-commit to the club, and for us to make a commitment to them, because they're all players of considerable talent and promise," Magpies chief of football Geoff Walsh told the club's website.

"All are at the beginning of their careers, bar Dane, who has made some great inroads in the last two or three years in particular, to become one of our premier midfielders."
