AFL Head of Women’s Football Nicole Livingstone said it is
exciting times for the AFLW, with expansion meaning another
120 places are available for talented female players from
across Australia at the elite level.
“The 2019 NAB AFLW Under-18 Championships saw the
country’s best young female talent displaying their skills for
club recruiters, including representatives from the four
expansion teams – West Coast Eagles, Gold Coast Suns,
Richmond and St Kilda,” Livingstone said.
“ I am excited to see what the next generation of players will
be able to bring to the elite competition.”
Molan’s week just gets better as she has just been selected to
