St Kilda has announced four further list changes ahead of the club’s first list lodgement on October 30.

Arryn Siposs, Tom Simpkin, Daniel Markworth and Spencer White have been advised they have been delisted.

Joining the departing players is Adam Schneider, who announced his retirement ahead of the round 22 match against Sydney.

Siposs played 28 games and kicked 22 goals for the Saints since he was drafted with pick 75 at the 2010 National Draft. The long-kicking forward won a Rising Star nomination in 2012.

Simpkin played 31 games and kicked two goals after he was elevated from the rookie list in 2011. An aggressive, hard-at-it defender, Simpkin’s best season came in 2012 when he played 19 matches.

White arrived at the club via pick 25 at the 2012 National Draft and played two senior games as a tall forward late in the 2014 season, booting four goals.

Markworth, who was taken with pick 35 at the 2011 National Draft, didn’t play at AFL level after four injury-riddled seasons on the St Kilda list. He was named as an emergency four times.

St Kilda Chief Operating Officer Ameet Bains paid tribute to the departing quartet.

“All four players have shown tremendous character right throughout their time at St Kilda, even when things did not go their way through injury or form,” Bains said.

“It is never easy for players to be given this type of news and we thank them for their contributions to the club and wish them well for their future endeavours.”

The club now has three vacancies on its primary list, with Jack Sinclair to be elevated from the rookie list after signing a two-year contract earlier this season.
