Richmond midfielder Thomson Dow will return for a fifth season at the Club after putting pen to paper on a new one-year deal for 2024.

The 21-year-old was a strong contributor across the final three AFL matches this season, averaging 21.3 disposals and four tackles, including a career-best 27 touches against Port Adelaide in the last round.

Dow received a coaches vote for the standout performance, which included 13 contested possessions and six clearances.

The 184cm athletic midfielder's recall had been well deserved after stellar form playing in the VFL for most of the season.

Dow has played 17 senior games for the Tigers since being selected with the Club's first pick, No. 21 overall at the 2019 AFL Draft.

Richmond General Manager- Football Talent Blair Hartley said Dow's encouraging late-season form should give him great confidence coming into the 2024 season.

"It was pleasing to see Thomson play some really strong football when given an opportunity late in the year, which is a reward for the hard work he has put in over the past four years," Hartley said.

"Thomson has a skill set that can add something to our midfield mix, and through this extension, we look forward to seeing him continue to grow next season.

“We are delighted to be keeping Thomson at Richmond.”


In other contract news, the Club can confirm that dual premiership players Jack Graham, Kamdyn McIntosh and Marlion Pickett will remain at Richmond for the 2024 season, having hit contract trigger extensions for next season.

Graham, 25, played 20 games for Richmond this season, taking his career tally to 117. He won the Francis Bourke Award for best embodying Club values in 2019 and was runner-up in the Jack Dyer Medal in 2021.

McIntosh will enter a 12th season with the Club through the extension and has played 168 matches since being selected from Western Australia with pick No. 31 in the 2012 AFL Draft.

Pickett played a career-high 21 AFL games in 2023 and was used by coaches in various roles, including as a hybrid forward, on the wing, and occasionally as a defensive midfielder.

The extension will see him enter a sixth campaign with the Club.
