VFLW Pride Day team announced
The Williamstown side to take on Melbourne Uni in Round 5 of the VFLW season has been announced.
This week's squad is highlighted by the return of Aliesha Newman who missed last week's loss in Box Hill.
Rebecca Dardengo returns from concussion and Jedda Heard is in line to play her first match of the 2019 season.
Kasie Nugent will make her VFLW debut at Downer Oval. Nugent, 26, played over 150 games for the Eastlake Demons in Canberra before crossing to the Seagulls and was named in AFL Canberra's Women's Team of the Decade.
The Seagulls are edging closer to their first win of the season after a tough nine-point loss against Hawthorn last week. Their Melbourne Uni opponents head into the contest in sixth position on the ladder with a 2-2 record.
This week's fixture is focused around pride, as we celebrate inclusiveness and promote diversity in a Pride Day double-header.
The 11:30am time slot for the women will be followed by the VFL side who take on North Melbourne at 2pm, with both sides to proudly wear pride guernseys.
