Former Hawthorn and Collingwood midfielder Tom Phillips has linked up with Ovens & Murray Football Netball League outfit the Wodonga Raiders for the 2024 season.

Phillips, who will split his time between the Victorian local club and his commitments with Carlton's VFL this year, last played in the AFL in 2022 with the Hawks.

The 27-year-old spent two seasons at Waverley before being delisted, with the wingman making the move to the VFL to sign with Essendon's reserves shortly after his departure.

The Oakleigh Chargers product amassed a total of 115 games in the AFL, having started his career with Collingwood, where he featured in the 2018 Grand Final.

After switching to Princes Park for the upcoming campaign at the state league level, Phillips has also been revealed as a new signing for the Wodonga Raiders.

"Exciting news! Tom Phillips, with an impressive 115 AFL games under his belt, has officially joined the Wodonga Raiders for the 2024 season," a club post read.

"Having played in the 2018 grand final with Collingwood and aligned with Carlton VFL, Tom has chosen us as his home club. Tom also played for Hawthorn.

"He'll hit the field when free from VFL commitments, bringing invaluable midfield experience to our young group.

"At just 27, Tom's energy and skill promise an exciting season ahead."

The Raiders managed an eighth-placed finish in 2023, recording two wins from 16 games for the season. They'll open their new season against Lavington on Good Friday later this month at Birallee Park.
