Hawks, Demons ring changes


Footy '06 @ Sports Australia Hawthorn today made several alterations to its playing list, elevating rookies Ben McGlynn and Stephen Gilham to the senior list for 2007 and delisting six players.

In private meetings with Senior Coach Alastair Clarkson and General Manager Football Operations Mark Evans, Matthew Ball, Luke Brennan, Nick Ries, Ben Kane, Harry Miller and Josh Thurgood were informed they would not be offered a position on the club’s list next year.

Evans said that at 23 years, Kane was too old to be retained as a rookie listed player in 2007 and has been informed the club is not upgrading him to the senior list.

“We thank each player for the contribution they have made to the Hawthorn Football Club and wish them success for their futures,” Evans said.

“We will work to assist them with their future football and career pursuits.”

Each player has been offered the opportunity to train with the club over the summer in a bid to be re-drafted.

McGlynn and Gilham both played four AFL games in 2006 and the football department was satisfied with the progress they had made at AFL level.

Other changes to the Hawthorn list include Peter Everitt being traded to the Sydney Swans and John Barker retiring.

In other news, Melbourne trio Phillip Read, Shannon Motlop, and Nick Smith have been advised they will not be offered playing contracts for the 2007 season.
