St Kilda Football Club has advised Tom Highmore he will not receive a contract for 2024.

Highmore joined the Saints with pick No. 45 in the 2020 National Draft.

He went on to play a total of 16 AFL games after debuting against Greater Western Sydney in Round 1 of the 2021 season.

“It’s never nice leaving a player in an uncertain situation and it has been a very difficult decision to come to,” Executive General Manager of Football David Misson said.

“Tom has been a popular member of our playing group throughout his time with the Saints.

“His positive attitude and willingness to remain adaptable and play wherever needed is a credit to his character.

“We wish Tom all the best for this next chapter.”
