In a devastating blow to the Lions’ prospects for next season, Lawton has informed GGGM that he will play elsewhere in 2017.

The Lions have been in negotiations with Lawton for some time but talks between the two parties hit a stalemate recently.

Lawton, along with fellow GGGM players Adam Cullen and Brandon Rigney, are expected to sign with Ovens and Murray League club Corowa-Rutherglen.

Lawton revealed the decision to leave is not one he wanted to make.

“It was a gut wrenching decision to be honest,” Lawton said.

“Me and the boys really wanted to continue to play at Ganmain and if it was up to me we would all be playing at Ganmain next year, but it’s not and that’s why we’ve decided to move on.

“I can’t speak any higher of my home club. The passion and love for the community and footy club hasalways been in my life and always will be.
