The Sydney Swans have made five changes to their playing list with Michael Knoll, Jack Maibaum, Harry Reynolds, Brady Rowles, and Ryley Stoddart being delisted.
Defender Stoddart has played six games for the Swans, including two in season 2020, after being recruited from Eastern Ranges with pick #53 in the 2017 AFL Draft.
In 2019, the 20-year-old was named in the NEAFL Team of the Year.
Fellow Eastern Ranges product Jack Maibaum was a regular in the Swans NEAFL side in 2018, but spent 2019 recovering from a knee reconstruction and was unable to break into the senior side this year.
Likewise, Harry Reynolds was a regular at NEAFL level in 2019, but did not feature at the senior level, after needing a shoulder reconstruction mid-way through this season.
US college basketballer Michael Knoll arrived at the club through the 2019 mid-season draft, but injury has prevented him from progressing to the senior level, while Brady Rowles was recruited through the Rookie Draft ahead of this season and was unable to secure a senior opportunity.
Sydney Swans GM-Football Charlie Gardiner has thanked all five players for their service to the club.
“On behalf of everyone at the Swans, I would like to thank Ryley, Jack, Harry, Michael and Brady for their efforts, commitment, and the contribution they have made to our club,” Gardiner said.
“These decisions are never easy, but unfortunately injuries and an interrupted season have limited the opportunities for these players to put their hand up for senior selection.
“We wish all of them the very best for the future."
