Recruiting Manager Dalrymple departs Kennel

February 9, 2018 6:05 PM

Western Bulldogs Recruiting Manager Simon Dalrymple has departed the club to take up a role with the Sydney Swans.

After a decade working with the Bulldogs as a development coach and recruiter, the club agreed to release Dalrymple from his contract to enable him to pursue another opportunity.

“I would like to take this chance to thank all of the staff at the Western Bulldogs for their support during my time at the club,” Dalrymple said.

“It has been a significant chapter of my career, and I am grateful for the opportunities I have been given.

“However, after more than a decade at the club, I believe it’s the right time for me to take on a fresh challenge.”

Dalrymple arrived at VU Whitten Oval in 2007 as a development coach, after five years in player development and recruitment at the Northern Knights.

From 2010 onwards, he has served as the Bulldogs’ Recruiting Manager, and he was recently made a life member of the club.

“Simon has been a valuable contributor to the Western Bulldogs over a long period of time, and I wish him and his family all the best in his future endeavours,” said Bulldogs’ Director of Football, Chris Grant.

“We are looking forward to Sam Power and his recruiting and list management team continuing to strengthen the club’s playing list under the team’s recently changed and expanded structure.”
