Bombers delist young forward Shuan Edwards

Essendon has delisted 22-year-old forward Shaun Edwards.

Edwards played 12 games for the Bombers after moving from GWS at the end of 2013 after 12 games in two season with the Giants.

He joins James Gwilt and Jason Ashby in being delisted by the club this season, while Adam Cooney and Tayte Pears have announced their retirements.

“Shaun is a great role model who constantly strives to make a difference both on and off the field,” Essendon football manager Rob Kerr said.

“He is well respected by his teammates and will always be welcome at Essendon. On behalf of everyone at the club we wish him all the very best for his future.”
