Hawthorn Football Club has announced the first changes to its list with Kaiden Brand, Teia Miles, David Mirra and Darren Minchington informed they will not be offered contracts for the 2020 season.
GM-Football Graham Wright thanked the players for their contribution to the club and wished them all the best in their next endeavours.
“On behalf of the club, I would like to extend our thanks to Kaiden, Teia, David and Darren for their contribution to Hawthorn,” said Wright.
“Each of these young men has demonstrated great commitment to the club and we wish them all the best in their next chapter.”
Defender Tim Mohr has also announced his retirement, finishing his career on 48 AFL games.
Mohr was one of GWS’ foundation players when the club joined the national competition in 2012.
He was delisted after seven seasons, before being picked up in last year’s Rookie Draft with hopes of continuing his career with the Hawks.
Unfortunately, Mohr’s season ended before it began; the 30-year-old was ruled out of the 2019 campaign after dislocating his knee in a VFL practice match in March.
“It’s obviously a disappointing way for Tim to finish his AFL career,” Wright said.
“However, the way he has carried himself around the club and set an example for his teammates has been commendable.”
“We thank Tim for his contribution over the last 12 months and wish him well in his next endeavour.”
