Ginnivan joins Hawks; Billings a chance to joins Dees as trade deadline day continues

Hawthorn are convinced Jack Ginnivan has just “scratched the surface” of what he can do in the AFL as he arrives at the Hawks.

Hawthorn national list and recruiting manager Mark McKenzie hailed Ginnivan’s arrival just a few weeks removed from winning a premiership with Collingwood.

“We couldn’t be happier that Jack wanted to come to Hawthorn – a club he’s loved since he was a kid,” McKenzie said.

“We love the way he goes about his footy, he’s a clever forward that hits the scoreboard and generates a lot of energy on the field.

“Having just won a premiership at 20 years of age, we believe he’s only scratched the surface of his potential, and we can’t wait to see just how high he can elevate his game at Hawthorn in the years to come.”

Collingwood football general manager Graham Wright bid Ginnivan farewell.

“We appreciate and accept Jack’s decision to seek further opportunity at Hawthorn,” Wright said.

“Jack’s contribution over the last three years has been significant and includes being a member of the 2023 premiership team, which he’ll always be a part of.

“Jack is still only 20 years old and has a lot of football ahead of him.

“On behalf of everyone at Collingwood we wish Jack well in all his future endeavours.”

Instagram page AFL Central found an old video showing Ginnivan speaking briefly about his love of the Hawks as a kid.
