The Goulburn Valley League's best player is staying at Echuca for at least another two seasons.
Reigning Morrison medallist Simon Buckley has re-signed with the Murray Bombers until the end of 2019.
The former Melbourne and Collingwood has stamped his mark as one of country Victoria's elite talents since joining Echuca in 2013.
He has won three Murray Bombers best-and-fairest awards and is a red-hot favourite to become the first player since 1981 to claim back-to-back Morrison Medals this year.
Echuca is on the hunt for a coach after Andrew Briggs announced he would not be continuing in the role next year after four seasons in charge.
