Tom Hislop

Not to be confused with Tommy Hyslop.

Tom Hislop (born 7 June 1988) is an Australian rules footballer who played for Essendon and Richmond in the Australian Football League.

He was drafted by the Essendon Football Club in 2006 at pick 20 and had shown some promise.

He made his debut in Round 14 vs Geelong and kicked a goal. However he suffered a stress fracture prior to Round 17 and missed the rest of the 2007 season.[1]

In 2008, Hislop injured his wrist and missed a few weeks but made his return with the VFL side Bendigo Bombers in round 6. He returned to the senior team in round 7.

Essendon offered Hislop a one-year contract at the end of 2008, which Hislop and his management believed to be of insufficient length. No subsequent agreement was reached, and the club eventually was forced to delist him in October. Hislop nominated for the 2008 AFL National Draft and was recruited by the Richmond Football Club with pick #58.

Hislop was delisted by Richmond on 14 October 2010 after playing fifteen senior games in his two seasons at the club. He was then redrafted by Richmond and played his first game of 2011 against the Sydney Swans at the Sydney Cricket Ground.

In November 2011, Tom signed with Aberfeldie Football Club in the Essendon District Football League in Metropolitan Melbourne and played in the 2012 season along with his two younger brothers, Jacob and Zachary who also signed to play at the club. All three will play on in Season 2013.
