Collingwood Vice Captain Scott Pendlebury announced on Twitter last night that he is set to remain a Magpie for another four years, until the end of season 2016. Following rumours that he may have received offers from other clubs, including Greater Western Sydney, Pendlebury said that he always knew that he would stay with the Pies.
With 127 games, a premiership and Norm Smith Medal in 2010, club Best and Fairest in 2011 and Vice Captain position under his belt, he said he is thinks he has the best opportunity to win another premiership at Collingwood. Being close to his friends and family and learning so much from his Captain Nick Maxwell he revealed that he had no intention of leaving the club.
He is looking forward to enjoying a lot more success with the Magpies and plans to remain there beyond the four year contract. In fact, he is hoping for a chance to lead the Collingwood Football Club some day, saying that it is something he would love to do.
