Quartet delisted by Gold Coast

The Gold Coast Suns have cut four players from their playing list following a disappointing 2016 season.

Seb TapeLuke Russell, Tom Keough and Danny Stanley have all been informed that they will not be offered new contracts in 2017.

“On behalf of everyone involved with the Gold Coast Suns, we want to commend the players for the contributions they have made to the club. We wish them every success and all the very best for the future,” Suns general manager of football operations Marcus Ashcroft said.

Stanley joined Gold Coast from Collingwood in 2011, playing 83 games for the Suns.

Tape, one of the side’s inaugural players, made 40 appearances for the club after being selected with pic No. 13 in the 2010 National Draft.

Russell, who was on the club’s list since being recruited as an underage player prior to the Suns’ inaugural season in the league, has also been cut, after 79 matches, while Tom Keough did not make any senior appearances after being recruited with pick No.3 in last year’s rookie draft.
