The Kangaroos secured open-age signings Ash Riddell, Georgia Nanscawen and Elisha King for the 2019 season.
Riddell, who is captain of Melbourne University Women’s Football Club (MUWFC), was overlooked in the AFLW draft last year despite being named in the VFLW Team of the Year.
“She was the only non-AFLW player to be listed in the 2017 VFLW team of the year so it speaks volumes about her talent and determination,” coach Scott Gowans said.
“She’s a versatile player with the ability to play inside, on a wing or as a half-forward so she will provide great flexibility.”
Nanscawen is the second youngest Hockeyroo while also being the youngest to reach 200 games. The 25-year-old will further her development in the WAFL before moving to Melbourne.
“Georgia’s had extensive experience as an Australian representative in hockey, so she is well accustomed to the professional lifestyle and demands,” Gowans said.
While All-Australia representative King has experience from being a member of the Brisbane Lions training squad.
