Axed forward to keep training with Hawks in bid to keep career alive


Delisted Hawthorn forward Darren Minchington is set to continue training with the Hawks in a bid to extend his AFL career into a ninth season.

Minchington, who turns 26 in December, was delisted last week by Hawthorn after just one season at Waverley.

The small pressure forward was let go by St Kilda at the end of 2018 after 28 senior games in seven years in which he was plagued by a string of injuries.

Picked up as a delisted free agent by the Hawks 12 months ago, Minchington again struggled to get his body right and was limited to eight VFL appearances and four goals for Box Hill.
