The Sydney Swans are excited to welcome Simon Dalrymple to the Club’s recruiting team.

Dalrymple joins the Swans from the Western Bulldogs, and will assume the role of National Recruiting Manager.

He joins the Swans with a wealth of experience and has a proven record in the field of talent identification, playing a major role in the establishment of the Bulldogs’ 2016 premiership team.

Dalrymple is joined by fellow new recruit Chris Keane, who is Sydney’s new Senior Data Analyst.

Keane comes to the Swans from GWS where he was Opposition Analyst.

Ross Monaghan, who’s been at the club for 12 months, will continue in his role as National Futures Coordinator. 

While Kinnear Beatson’s title has been elevated to General Manager – List Strategy and Recruiting to reflect the significant contribution he makes to the Football Department and broader club.

Head of Football Tom Harley says he’s rapt with the Club’s recruiting team for 2018.

“We believe we have a fantastic team of people in place to take our playing list forward in 2018 and beyond,” Harley said.

“I’d like to congratulate Kinnear on his elevation and welcome Simon and Chris to the Club.”
