ESSENDON has made two changes to its list, delisting former rookie Ben McNiece and uncapped youngster Jordan Houlahan.

McNiece, who came through the club's Next Generation Academy, has been cut from the list after managing 15 senior games across three years.

Meanwhile, Houlahan did not manage to make his AFL debut for the Bombers after he was recruited as a high-flying forward with pick No.49 in the 2017 NAB AFL Draft.

"On behalf of the club, I would like to thank Ben and Jordan for their efforts during their careers at Essendon," Bombers footy boss Dan Richardson said.

"Ben displayed great dedication to the program, he was a popular player amongst the group and brought great leadership to our younger players.

"Although Jordan was unable to make his debut for the club, he always maintained professional standards and showed commitment in his approach to developing his football career. 

"We wish both Ben and Jordan all the best in their future endeavours."
