Dual coder Paige Parker is set to play for the Gold Coast Suns for the next two seasons.
The 23-year-old, who made her debut for the Brisbane Lions in the past season, was not offered a contract with the club.
“Unfortunately for Paige we can only offer 22 contracts and she’s sitting just outside that number,” Lions Women’s CEO Breeanna Brock said.
Parker spent two years as a train-on player for the Lions before the club selected her at the 2018 AFLW Draft.
The Australian touch football representative will play in the World Cup later this month in Kuala Lumpur.
Parker was a member of the Suns Winter Series team in 2018, eventually going on to win the Best Emerging Player award at the SUNS’ Club Champion.
“I’m super pumped,” Parker said.
“I really enjoyed Winter Series, it was a great environment to be a part of and obviously I’m back so I loved it that much and I’m excited to be a part of this year and the year after that."
Down south, the Western Bulldogs locked in record-breaking forward Brooke Lochland and midfielder Deanna Berry for the next season.
The duo joins the likes of Ellie Blackburn and rising star Isabel Huntington, who signed new contracts earlier this week.
The AFLW Trade and Sign period will end on April 18.
