CARLTON Football Club would like to thank Danielle Hardiman and Kate Gillespie-Jones for their contribution to the Blues’ AFL Women’s program.

As foundation players of the Club’s inaugural AFLW side, the pair were recruited by Carlton via the 2016 national women’s draft.

Runner-up in the Blues’ 2017 best and fairest, Hardiman played 12 games over her two seasons at the Club, while Gillespie-Jones notched up 13 appearances in the navy blue.

Head of Football Andrew McKay thanked the pair for their services and wished them well as they continue their career at North Melbourne.

“On behalf of the Carlton Football Club I’d like to thank Danielle and Kate for their dedication and commitment to our women’s program throughout their time at the Blues,” McKay said.

“As foundation players of our AFLW team we appreciate the role they played over the past two years and wish them all the best for the future.”
