Western Bulldogs forward Aiden O’Driscoll has retired from the AFL effective immediately on medical grounds.

Aiden suffered a significant head injury during a preseason training session in January.

Following extensive clinical assessments, investigations and expert consultation that included a review by an Independent Medical Concussion Panel, Aiden has been advised to retire from contact sports in the interests of his long-term health and wellbeing. 

The West Australian was drafted at Pick 55 in the 2023 National Draft and has not played an AFL game.

The Club will give Aiden and his family all the support it can at this difficult time.
