Carlton is delighted to have secured Brianna Davey as one of its marquee players for its inaugural women’s team in 2017.
The 21-year-old began her professional sporting career playing soccer, even making the Matildas national squad as goalkeeper.
After winning the 2016 W-League championship with Melbourne City, Davey decided to switch codes, making her one of only a handful of female footballers that have played another sport at the highest level.
The versatile defender, who also plays in the midfield, currently plays with the St Kilda Sharks, and has represented the Bulldogs for the past two years.
Davey is known for her sure hands and her ability to break away from packs. She can play in a key position role or as a bullocking mid.
Wherever she plays, one thing is for sure: she can blow a game wide open.
There’s no doubt she’s going to be an asset for the Old Dark Navy Blues.
