Veteran cut as Cats cleanout begins

THE footy season is over but for list management teams at AFL clubs, this is the busiest time of the year.

Almost 70 players have already been cut from club lists through retirements and delistings, while two Adelaide players have signalled their intention to leave via free agency.

A host of others are set to change clubs in the exchange period, while some of the axed players are hoping to earn another chance as a delisted free agent or in the new supplemental selection period that runs all the way to Round 1 next year.

The latest player to suffer the chop is Geelong veteran Scott Selwood.

The highly-regarded clubman and brother of Cats captain Joel Selwood played 34 games with the Cats after arriving from West Coast in the 2015 trade period. He managed just two games this year.

"Scott has been a much-loved member of the club over his four years here. The way in which he has conducted himself on and off the field, has earned him great respect from his teammates and coaches," football manager Simon Lloyd said.

"Scott is always welcome at the club, and we wish him well in his future endeavours. We hope to see a new opportunity come his way in football as he has a lot to offer."

Last week the Cats delisted Jordan Cunico and Jamaine Jones. They are also expected to lose star midfielder Tim Kelly in the trade period.
