Player Bio

At a glance

AFLW clubs: Carlton
Debut: Round 1, 2017
Recruited from: Bendigo Thunder (VIC)

Described by senior women’s coach Damien Keeping as “one of the most exciting youth girl graduates” tin 2016, Arye is a key forward who can take solid contested marks.

The No.51 draft pick's versatility to also rotate into the midfield makes her a tremendous acquisition for the team.

“Bella’s workrate and endurance allows her to be competitive from the first bounce of the ball, until the final siren,” Keeping said.

“Although she generally plays up forward and can pinch-hit in the midfield, Bella can also help down back if required, so she’s an extremely flexible player.”

Highlighting her talent, Ayre was named runner-up in Bendigo Thunder's best and fairest in 2016.
