Melbourne delist three, including former skipper

Melbourne has delisted Matt Jones, Dean Terlich and former captain, Jack Grimes.

“These decisions are obviously difficult given the competition for spots on our list. On behalf of everyone at the Club, we would like to thank Jack, Matt and Dean for their hard-work and commitment during their time with us,” General Manager of Football Josh Mahoney said.

“Jack Grimes is a man of great integrity and this was a tough decision for everyone involved. He had captained the Club and is universally respected for his professional approach to football. This was on full display this year in his time with the Casey Scorpions, where he drove standards at VFL level and helped the team reach a Grand Final. Jack played 100 games for the Club and will become a life member and we wish him well for the next phase of his AFL journey.

“Matt and Dean arrived at the Club together as mature aged recruits and made an immediate impact, both finishing in the top 5 of the 2013 Best and Fairest Award. They will leave the Club knowing they made a significant contribution during their time here.”

Grimes played 100 games for the Demons after being recruited with pick No.14 in the 2007 National Draft. He was co-captain of the club from 2012 to 2013.

Jones played 61 games for Melbourne after being selected with pick 53 in the 2012 draft, while Terlich played 35 matches after also being drafted in 2012.


    • Yep. Couldn’t get into the team this year. Unfortunately a victim of very bad era at Melbourne with poor development. Turns it over too much and makes poor decisions too often. Did well in the VFL but they obviously don’t see enough development left in him to keep him when the likes of Oliver and Hunt are coming on nicely.
