Brisbane Lions have delisted former Kyabram and Murray Bushrangers player Patrick Wearden.
The AFL club yesterday announced a number of list changes following the end to its campaign against Geelong at Kardinia Park on Saturday night.
Wearden was delisted along with fellow senior Lions players James Polkinghorne, Jordan Lisle and Andrew Raines and rookie-listed trio Nicholas Hayes, Sam Michael and Isaac Conway.
The Lions released a statement thanking the players for their service to the club.
‘‘While the departure of players at the end of each season is inevitable, the club acknowledges the contributions made by James, Andrew, Jordan, Patrick, Nicholas, Sam and Isaac, and wish them every success,’’ the statement read.
The Lions drafted Wearden, 21, with pick 47 in the National Draft.
He battled injuries during his time north and failed to break into the senior team to play a home-and-away season game.
But he was a key member of the Lions’ reserves NEAFL premierships in 2012 and last year.
His bio on the Lions’ website calls him a ‘‘natural forward who can kick the ball long, take a strong mark, and is dangerous in front of goal.
‘‘He also reads the game well and shows great athleticism (good repeat speed) which could see him potentially develop into a future midfielder.’’
Wearden’s delisting leaves Benalla’s Tom Rockliff as the only Goulburn Valley player left at the Gabba.
