Family, friends and football.

He may not have been born here but Melbourne sure feels like home for Kenny Bromwich.

That is why his decision to re-sign with Storm was not a difficult one to make.

The versatile Kiwi forward will remain in Melbourne for at least the next two seasons after signing a new deal with the Club.

Be at AAMI Park when we take on the Sharks, Saturday 3 September, 7:30pm.

Bromwich has enjoyed a breakout season in 2016, playing every game in Craig Bellamy’s side.

He also made his international debut when he was called up to represent New Zealand in May.

Tuesday’s announcement was the perfect chapter to add to what has been an exciting year for the 25-year-old.

“It feels good, my whole family is here and I’m happy so it’s great to stay here for a few more years,” Bromwich said.

“It was pretty easy, I wanted to stay around here and being around the kind of people that are here was a massive factor in me staying.

“What we’ve done this year, I am hoping to do for the rest of the year and further.”

Bromwich must now turn his attention to stopping the Cronulla Sharks.

The boys from the Shire will come to Melbourne for a minor premiership decider at AAMI Park on Saturday night.

With no AFL in town, another big crowd is expected and Bromwich is looking forward to seeing the Storm faithful turn out in full voice.

“We hope we can get a big crowd there with heaps of people in purple,” Bromwich said.

“Hopefully we get a few people there to cheer us on because it is a big game and we’d like to see everyone there.”
