Vickery a Hawk as Tigers accept AFL trade

AFL free agent Ty Vickery has officially joined Hawthorn, with Richmond choosing not to match the Hawks’ two-year deal for the 200cm forward-ruckman.

With Vickery leaving as a restricted free agent, the Tigers will receive a second-round compensation pick – currently pick No.26 – based on his age and the length of his new contract.

The addition of Vickery could help the Hawks cover the losses of key forward Jarryd Roughead, who missed this season as he underwent cancer treatment, and ruckman Jonathon Ceglar, who is on the comeback trail from a knee reconstruction.
