Son of Derry legend Anthony Tohill signs new AFL contract with Collingwood

FORMER DERRY player Anton Tohill has signed a contract extension at AFL club Collingwood. 

Having won the Ulster U20 title, the then 18-year-old made the move to the Melbourne-based side along with Cork’s Mark Keane in October 2018. 

Swatragh man Tohill, who is the son of Derry legend and All-Ireland winner Anthony Tohill, initially joined on a category B rookie contract and has been developing as a forward/ruck over the past two seasons. 

He has yet to make a senior appearance but featured in the Victorian Football League (VFL) before returning home due to the Covid-19 outbreak.

In a statement released last night, Collingwood revealed that Tohill is one of four players to extend his stay — signing a new one-year deal ahead of the 2021 season.
