Dogs list manager defects to the Giants

Jason McCartney is headed to GWS as its new list manager

JASON McCartney will take over as Greater Western Sydney's new list manager.

He will replace the recently departed Craig Cameron at the helm of the Giants' recruiting team.

McCartney is leaving the job of list manager at the Western Bulldogs, with his contract set to expire this month.

There have been consistent rumblings of disharmony within the Dogs' recruiting team, notably with rumoured differences between McCartney and recruiting manager Simon Dalrymple.

McCartney has been at the Dogs since 2011, and played a part in assembling the club's drought-breaking premiership team of 2016.

GWS football manager Wayne Campbell said the club hoped McCartney’s success with the Bulldogs could be replicated in Sydney.

"Jason has a proven track record as one of the most highly regarded football administrators in the AFL and we’re delighted he’s joining the club," he said.

"His work in managing the Western Bulldogs’ list and TPP, culminating in the 2016 [remiership, has been outstanding and we feel he will be a perfect addition to the Giants' football department."

McCartney will commence his role at GWS in the new year.

Cameron suddenly resigned from the Giants just 11 days before Friday night's NAB AFL Draft, after accepting an expanded role with Gold Coast.

He was contracted with the Giants until the end of 2019.

The Giants were quick to distance themselves from Cameron, issuing a statement that stated they had "cut ties" with the list manager and had "immediately" started a search for his replacement.

Cameron is set to take up his role of general manager list and strategy with the Suns in mid-December.

It is understood Suns list manager Scott Clayton will finish up this week at Gold Coast after presiding over the recent national and rookie drafts.
