DONE DEAL: The Western Bulldogs have announced the re-signing 20-year-old forward utility.

The Western Bulldogs have wrapped up some loose ends on the field by re-signing utility Dominic Bedendo for another season.

After the club revealed earlier this week that duo Lachlan McNeil and Taylor Duryea will be delisted and then selected by the club at the Rookie Draft later this month, Bedendo was the last surviving Bulldogs player without a deal for 2024.

Bedendo’s retention was confirmed on Thursday, with the third-year player extending his stay in blue, white, and red until 2024.

“Dom hasn’t had much luck with injury over the past 12 months, but we feel he’s got real growth in his game heading into 2024,” Bulldogs list manager Sam Power said in a club release.

“He has shown flashes throughout his VFL and AFL games and will benefit from a full pre-season starting in November.”

“Dom’s athletic traits and ability to compete in the air will hold him in good stead as he aims for more regular football next season.”

Bedendo has played two games for the Bulldogs after being drafted in 2020, making his debut in Round 16 last year before increasing his career tally a week later.

Injuries have since limited Bedendo’s availability, with the 21-year-old playing only two VFL games this year and now senior games.
