Kingborough Lions United issued the following statement this evening:
“Kingborough Lions United Football Club have released Nicholas Hill from their Victory League squad.
“Hill was sent off on the weekend for violent conduct and received a 2-match ban with a further week for failing to leave the field directly.
“Hill’s on field conduct had been reviewed earlier in the season after an incident at Lightwood Park which was deemed disrespectful towards the club and team mates.
“The weekend’s post red card actions were a contradiction to the terms agreed upon at that meeting by all parties.
“Whilst Hill has demonstrated excellent skills within the team structure this season the incidents which have occurred have been outside what the club deems to be acceptable.
“The Lions wish Hill all the best for the remainder of his time in Tasmania.
“His replacement in the 20-man squad will be named before the approaching deadline.”

Hill arrived in Tasmania early this year to join Victory League club South Hobart but soon joined Kingborough Lions United.
