North Melbourne defender Ed Vickers-Willis has been informed he will not be offered a contract for the 2021 season.

The 24-year-old played 21 games for the Kangaroos since being drafted with pick 36 in the 2014 National Draft.

North GM football Brady Rawlings thanked Vickers-Willis for his contribution.

“It’s never an easy decision to delist players, particularly Ed who has contributed so much to our program,” Rawlings told North Media.

“Ed endured a few hurdles with injury throughout his time and showed great determination through his rehabilitation.

“He’s been a great role model and ambassador on and off the field and we wish him all the best for the next chapter.”
