Eagles make five list changes

West Coast has begun an off-season clean out of it's playing list, delisting five players on Wednesday.

Francis Watson ,Hamish Brayshaw, Nic Reid, Mitch O'Neil and Anthony Treacy were all moved on by the club, as all 18 AFL clubs prepare for reduced list sizes for 2021.

Watson, who suffered a serious knee injury at training late in the season played two games in 2019 and spent four seasons on the list after being recruited from Claremont, while Brayshaw was only able to play one game in three seasons, having debuted in round 17 against St Kilda this season.

Reid was a great footballing story, the 24 year old school teacher recruited to the Eagles WAFL side as a top up player in 2019 having played with North Beach in the Perth Football League.

Selected as a supplementary player in the pre-season Reid managed three games this year in rounds 12-14, kicking a memorable goal on debut against Hawthorn.

Rookies Treacy and O'Neill failed to play a senior game in their time on the Eagles list.

West Coast list manager Darren Glass thanked all players for their contributions to the club.

"It is obviously a difficult time of the year and on behalf of the club I would like to thank each of those players for their contributions," Glass said.

"They have all had an impact around the playing group and we wish them well for the future."

The AFL is set to announce a reduction in list spots for all AFL clubs in 2021 at the conclusion of this season.
