The West Coast Eagles have informed players Kurt Mutimer, Matthew Allen and Keegan Brooksby they will not be offered contracts for the 2020 season.
Mutimer was drafted with the 57th pick out of the Dandenong Stingrays in 2015 and went onto make his debut in a memorable 41 point derby victory over Fremantle in 2017.
The versatile midfielder played a total of four games for the Eagles but was a strong contributor for both East Perth, West Coast’s previously affiliated club and eventually the WAFL Eagles in 2019.
Matthew Allen was recruited from South Australia in 2015. The athletic, strong utility originally played predominantly in the forward line but after increasing his endurance over multiple preseasons moved into a midfield role in 2018.
The powerful left footer’s switch resulted in an East Perth best and fairest award and he also contributed strongly for the WAFL Eagles this season.
Keegan Brooksby came to West Coast at the end of 2018 after 14 games for the Gold Coast Suns.
The tireless ruckman was excellent for the WAFL Eagles in the team’s first season, leading the young squad to a birth in the finals.
Brooksby showed great dedication to the craft of ruckwork while also playing a team role in the forward line throughout the 2019 season.
“The dedication and commitment that Kurt, Matthew and Keegan have displayed throughout their time at West Coast has been admirable and appreciated,” says General Manager of Football Craig Vozzo.
“The club thanks all three players for their contribution and wishes them all the very best in their future endeavours.”
