Hawthorn have announced that trio Fergus Greene, Lachie Bramble and Ned Long have not been offered new deals for the 2024 season.

Greene's future was up in the air given his expiring contract and the arrival of key forwards Mabior Chol and Jack Gunston through the trade period, with the former Bulldogs' time at Waverley coming to an end after one season.

Greene joined the club as a delisted free agent last off-season and would play 11 games in the brown and gold, booting 15 goals.

Bramble joined the Hawks in 2021 via the Supplemental Selection Period and played 30 games over his three seasons with the club.

Long was drafted to the Hawks via the 2021 Rookie Draft and five appearances with the club over two years.

“These decisions are never easy to make and we thank each of these boys for their dedication to our football club,” Hawks list manager Mark McKenzie said in a club statement.

“Lachy, Fergus and Ned are all popular members of our club, and on behalf of everyone at Hawthorn, I'd like to wish them all the best in their next chapters."

The trio of delistings follow the recent club decisions to not offer new deals to Emerson Jeka and Josh Morris, while Fionn O'Hara and the Hawks mutually decided to part ways also.

Ruckman Max Lynch announced his retirement earlier this year, while Brandon Ryan and Jacob Koschitzke departed the club through the trade period.
