St Kilda has reportedly made their first list change following the 2018 season, delisting Irishman Ray Connellan.

AFL.com.au understand the forward has been told by the Saints he will not be offered a contract for 2019, after failing to play a senior game after two years on the club’s list.

The 24-year-old has been a mainstay in the VFL, playing 33 matches for Sandringham over the past two seasons.

Connellan is hoping to further his AFL career at another club, after receiving bad news from the Saints.

AFL.com.au have also reported fellow Irishman Darragh Joyce, who came to the club with Connellan, will be rewarded with another deal.
