Ahead of the AFL’s list lodgement deadline, Hawthorn Football Club has informed Brendan Whitecross and Kieran Lovell they will not be offered contracts for the 2019 season.

Hawthorn General Manager Football Graham Wright thanked the players for their contribution to the club and wished them all the best in their next chapter.

“On behalf of the club I would also like to extend our thanks to Brendan and Kieran for their contribution to Hawthorn and wish them all the best in their future endeavours.

“Brendan has spent a long time at our footy club, having joined the Hawks in the 2007 draft. He is a life member and an amazing clubman.

“Unfortunately for Brendan his career has been interrupted with injuries, however he has always shown great resilience and determination in the face of adversity. We are rapt that he was finally able to get some reward for all his hard work and finish his time at the Hawks with a VFL premiership.

“We wish Brendan, his wife Kelly and their family all the best for their next adventure.”
