Parkin and Steane Named to Lead BDAFL Women's Rep Team

Gosford's Alison Parkin has been named as captain of the Hunter Haval Black Diamond AFL (BDAFL) Women's team for this Saturday's Representative match against AFL Sydney, with Nelson Bay's Lisa Steane as her deputy.

Parkin is a vastly experienced player having played over 100 club games and 25 representative games, including spending a decade playing in the AFL Sydney competition prior to moving to Gosford last year.

Steane, is arguably the best player in the GE Women's competition and is the reigning Best and Fairest winner. She was a member of the GWS Giants AFLW training squad this year and that experience has taken her game to a new level.

The squad was reduced to 22 after training last night with Jess Phillips (Nelson Bay), Jacqui Dudgeon (Maitland) and Rachel Elcoate (Gosford) named as emergencies.

The match at Adelaide St Oval, Tumbi Umbi will commence at 12pm.
