Van De Heuvel to make AFLW Debut 


Williamstown Football Club would like to congratulate Sophie Van de Heuvel who will make her debut tomorrow night for Geelong against Collingwood at GMHBA Stadium.

Having come from an outstanding season for the GWV Rebels, Van de Heuvel played her first game for the club in our first ever win against Richmond amassing 20 disposals and 8 tackles showing why she is so highly rated.

Vic Country commitments took over mid-season where she was best on ground against WA with 23 disposals to go along with 3 goals in a dominant display and was named in the bests for her other two games which helped her earn All Australian honours.

Upon returning to Williamstown, Van de Heuvel once again showed her class in our win over Essendon with 11 touches, a goal and 10 tackles against the Bombers capping off an impressive 2018. At the AFLW Combine Van De Heuvel finished second in the 20m sprint and was in the top handful of the yo-yo test showing off her endurance ability in Geelong selected her with their pick 2 in the AFLW National Draft.

“I’m incredibly excited to be given the opportunity to play round one and create history, hopefully we can get a win first up and I can play my role for the team in a win for the Cats.” Van de Heuvel said. 

Sophie will wear number 27 for the Cats in a tribute to her father Mark who played 200 games for Sebastopol Football Club in the Ballarat Football League.

We would also like to wish good luck to 2018 VFLW listed players in Jess Duffin, Jasmine Garner & Jenna Bruton who will feature for North Melbourne in this year’s AFLW.
