West Coast re-signs veteran Embley

West Coast veteran Andrew Embley has today re-signed with the club and will get the opportunity to press on to 250 games next year.

Embley, who currently has 239 games to his name and won a Norm Smith Medal in 2006, has signed on for next year.

The 31-year-old missed much of the 2012 season because of a shoulder injury but made it back in time for the finals - where he kicked four goals in the win over North Melbourne but committed a crucial and untimely error against Collingwood last week.

Embley was joined in re-signing by emerging Eagles Pat McGinnity, Brad Sheppard and Jacob Brennan.

Brennan, son of Eagles premiership vice-captain Michael Brennan, debuted in round six this year and then played 16 of the last 19 games.

McGinnity has played 40 of the past 47 games for West Coast, while Sheppard played 12 games this year before succumbing to an ankle injury.
