The Sydney Swans AFLW team has taken another huge step forward with SEVEN more players committing to the team, including Alice Mitchell and Zoe Hurrell, both products of the Mosman Swans Junior AFL club.
The new Swans include NSW athletes Alice Mitchell, Maddy Collier and Sarah Ford, along with North Melbourne VFLW captain Molly Eastman, Hawthorn VFLW midfielders Lauren Szigeti and Aimee Whelan, and track athlete Montana Beruldsen, who have committed to sign to the red and white ahead of Sydney’s inaugural season, which commences later this year
It comes after the Sydney Swans last week announced QBE Sydney Swans Academy athlete Ruby Sargent-Wilson as the club’s first AFLW player.
Sydney Swans AFLW senior coach Scott Gowans said he’s thrilled to welcome the new players on board as the team starts to take shape.
“It’s really exciting and it’s a step in the right direction from a list build perspective,” Gowans said.
“You’re starting to put people into positions and know what you now have and what you can build on – until you get that first group you don’t know whether you need a ruck or midfielder.
“It’s terrific to have people that want to come and learn about the culture and help grow it.”
