Brisbane Lions midfielder Brent Moloney has today announced his retirement from AFL football due to an achilles injury.
Originally drafted by Geelong in 2003, Moloney called time on his career after 23 matches with the Cats, 122 with Melbourne, and 21 games with the Lions.
The 30-year-old played 15 games from Brisbane last season but managed just five in 2014.
Lions football manager Darren Warren said Moloney was a great mentor for the younger players and would be missed.
“Brent is a fantastic character and we are fortunate to have had him as part of our Lions family.
“Brent has been a great mentor for our young playing list, in particular our midfielders and will be sorely missed around the club.
“We wish him all the very best in his future endeavours.”
Moloney played 166 AFL games in total, kicking 46 goals.
Congratulations to @Beamnation3 on a great career.Also a great mentor and friend to all of us younger midfielders.
