THE BRISBANE Lions have delisted Mitch Golby and Jordon Bourke.

It takes to six the number of changes they have made to their list following the retirements of Brent Staker, Matt Maguire and Luke McGuane and the decision to not renew the contract of former skipper Jed Adcock.

Jack Redden has also requested a trade.

Golby played 56 games in his six seasons at the Lions, but managed just five this year, and none after round eight.

The 23-year-old is a clever half-back and had his best season in 2013 where he played 18 games and averaged 20 disposals.

Bourke, the son of former Bears and Geelong ruckman Damian, was taken by the Lions in the 2012 Rookie Draft and played six games in his three seasons.

Primarily a key defender, the 20-year-old played five games this year and was an effective forward at times, kicking two goals against Adelaide in round 13.
