Player Bio

At a Glance

AFLW clubs: Carlton
Debut: Round 1, 2017
Recruited from: Seaford Tigerettes (VIC)

The power athlete has played five seasons of senior women’s football, after falling in love with Aussie Rules as a child.

She made her debut for Melbourne’s women’s team in early 2017 and prides herself on her ability to cover the ground, as well as provide an option up forward.

Senior women’s coach Damien Keeping says the No.14 draft pick has a solid pair of hands and has the capability to make her own space.

“Kate’s strength in the marking contest, coupled with her ability to burst through congested packs makes her a difficult match-up for any opposition,” Keeping said.
