The Western Bulldogs have re-signed 22 players including captain Katie Brennan and vice-captain Ellie Blackburn.
“It was really important for us to keep our core group together – a group that has helped create a great culture, resulting in the team achieving the ultimate success last season,” coach Paul Groves said.
“With the expansion of the competition in 2019, getting the signatures of 22 of our existing girls is really exciting and a great sign of their bond,” he said.
Groves had also recently signed a contract extension, keeping him with the Dogs until the 2020 AFLW season.
Four players have not been contracted for the 2019 season; Laura Bailey, Kim Ebb, Jess Anderson and Rachel Ashley.
