Martyn nominates for AFL draft

Veteran Mick Martyn has confirmed he will attempt to revive his AFL career by nominating for Sunday's national draft.

Martyn, delisted by the Kangaroos last month, has lodged draft nomination forms with the league in an attempt to keep his 287-game career alive.

The fullback has had an emotional year having endured the death of his father Bryan and survived the Bali bomb blasts.

He has since reportedly told the Roos he will never set foot at the club again following his axing after 15 seasons.

Delisted trio James Begley (St Kilda), Daniel McAlister (Essendon) and Ricky Mott (Sydney) have also nominated for the draft, with the latter a good chance to be snared by the Bombers to address their desperate ruck shortage.

Aspiring draftees have until to Wednesday afternoon to nominate for the draft, held at 11am (AEDT) Sunday.

Only junior and delisted players can nominate for the national draft, while players still on AFL playing lists will have to wait for December's pre-season draft should they seek a new club.
