Essendon has today made another list change ahead of Thursday’s first list lodgement deadline, with Mitch Brown informed he would not be offered a contract for 2020.

Brown began his career with Geelong, where he played 15 games before arriving at The Hangar via pick No.54 in the 2015 NAB AFL Draft.

The 29-year-old booted 59 goals from 55 games in the red and black, with versatility and hard running his main strengths.

General manager of football Dan Richardson thanked Brown for his commitment to the club.

“On behalf of the club, I would like to thank Mitch for his service throughout his four years at Essendon,” Richardson said.

“Mitch showed tremendous leadership both on and off the field and allowed great versatility to our line-up. We wish Mitch all the best in his future endeavours.”

The club has now made the following changes to its list:

Acquired - Andrew Phillips, Tom Cutler and Ross McQuillan

Delisted – Ben McNiece, Jordan Houlahan, Trent Mynott, Jake Long, Tom Jok, Zac Clarke and Mitch Brown

Retired – David Myers, Matt Dea and Mark Baguley
