Player Bio

At a glance

AFLW clubs: Carlton
Debut: Round 2, 2017
Recruited from: Wimbledon Hawks (UK)

Lifelong Bluebagger Kate Shierlaw will boost Carlton’s forward line and ruck stocks when she pulls on the navy blue jumper as a rookie in 2017.
 
Standing at 186cm tall, Shierlaw will be the tallest player on Carlton’s list, providing her teammates with a target no matter where she plays on the ground.

The Adelaide-born forward hails from an athletics background (basketball and javelin) and began playing football for the Wimbledon Hawks in the AFL London Women’s League. She won the Hawks' best and fairest this season, highlighting her ability to adapt to the sport. 

Women’s senior coach Damien Keeping says although Shierlaw has only recently taken up the game, her desire and work ethic to improve her football skills is second to none.
