St Kilda veteran Adam Schneider will play his last game this weekend after announcing his retirement from AFL football.

Schneider played 129 games with the Saints, after moving across from Sydney in 2007, after 98 games with the Swans including the 2005 Premiership.

The 31-year-old played in a total of five Grand Finals (two with Sydney, three with St Kilda) in his 227 game career, as he established himself as a dangerous small forward over his 13 year career.

Schneider said he was grateful for the opportunity both the Swans and the Saints gave him to play AFL.

“I’ve been very fortunate to have represented two great clubs throughout my time in football,” Schneider said.

“I’ve had some fantastic experiences, met a lot of wonderful people and am extremely grateful to have had the career I have had.”


  1. While decisions over the futures of senior players at Geelong and North Melbourne have hogged the headlines, St Kilda may also be facing a difficult call, with versatile veteran Adam Schneider yet to decide whether he will ask the club to continue in a playing capacity in 2016. Schneider, 31, was delisted at the end of last season, only to be picked up by the Saints as a rookie.
