FORWARD prospect Sam Dobson is desperate to cement his status as a regular among Geelong’s Victorian Football League ranks, extending his contract at Kardinia Park into next season.

Dobson pulled on the hoops just 12 times this season, but managed a club-high 22 majors to lead the Cats’ goalkicking.

The 24-year-old told The Standard he was content but not satisfied with his output in 2017.

“I was happy with how I went, but there’s still lots of room for improvement in my game. You never want to be too comfortable,” Dobson said.

“Compared to last year, I definitely built my game up and got a little bit stronger and better this time out. 

“Hopefully I can really improve and have a good crack next season. I want to play the majority of my footy with Geelong.”

Dobson said he would continue to extract knowledge from Geelong’s coaching staff in a bid to improve.

“I don’t know how people don’t take advantage of the facilities (and resources) at Geelong because they’re the best in the country,” he said.
