Port Adelaide will hit the season running when they take on Melbourne this Sunday having been boosted by the re-signing of four key young players.

Jackson Trengove, John Butcher, Alipate Carlile and Andrew Moore all agreed to new deals with the club.

Carlile looks set to be a one club player with the 25-year-old extending his contract until the end of 2017.

The key defender would have been a restricted free agent at the end of this season.

Trengove, Butcher, and Moore all signed two-year extensions keeping them at Alberton until the end of 2015.

Port Adelaide coach Ken Hinkley says the re-signing of the quartet is a sign that club has a bright future ahead.

“With all four of these talented young players committing to the club together, it’s just a great show of faith in what we’re trying to do and where we’re heading,” said Hinkley.

“We want stability in this club and along with our skipper Travis Boak re-committing last year we’re actually building a club where players want to be a part of what we’re doing because they see a bright future.”

The four players will all travel to their home state of Victoria this week as they prepare to take on a wounded Demons side who could be without Jack Trengove, Mitch Clark and Chris Dawes.
