Power Punt Stewart
Utility delisted after 10 years at Alberton
Port Adelaide have delisted Paul Stewart after 101 games and 10 seasons with the club.
The utility played 14 matches for the Power in 2016 – the third-best tally of his career – but he is no longer viewed to be in the club’s future plans.
“It’s been a good 10 years at the club, and I’ve been proud to play one game for the club let alone my 100th this year,” Stewart said.
“It’s been a real once-in-a-lifetime journey, and I want to thank my family, my partner Kirra and her family for all their support.
“I want to thank the footy club for the opportunity, my coaches Mark Williams, Matty Primus and Ken Hinkley, the assistants, support staff, my management at TLA, the old boys and ladies in the kitchen and all my teammates over the 10 years.
“I especially want to thank all the fans for their support during my career.”
Stewart, who was originally taken at pick No.23 in the 2006 draft, hopes to continue his AFL career elsewhere in 2017.
The 29-year-old joins Alipate Carlile (retired), Jay Schulz (delisted), John Butcher (delisted), Sam Colquhoun (delisted) and Kane Mitchell (delisted) as departures from the club in the post-season.
