Western Bulldogs utility Mitch Hannan has been advised that he will not be offered a contract for the 2024 season. 

The 29-year-old arrived at the Kennel after crossing from Melbourne in 2020.  He was traded to the red, white and blue for a third-round draft selection.

Hannan played 30 games for the Dogs across three seasons, kicking 21 goals and playing in the 2021 AFL Grand Final.

The Footscray Premiership player could only manage six senior games this season as injuries took their toll, including a season-ending ruptured Achilles he sustained in the VFL.

Bulldogs’ General Manager of List and Recruiting Sam Power thanked Hannan for his contribution during his time at VU Whitten Oval.

“Mitch has contributed strongly across his time at the Bulldogs, highlighted by playing a pivotal role in the Club’s push towards the Grand Final in 2021,” Power said.

“He’s been a fantastic team-mate inside the locker room, and we wish him all the best for the next stage of his career.”
