South-east trio join the Seagulls
Williamstown is thrilled to confirm the new signings of south-east trio Lana King, Emily Fox and Olivia Purcell.
Head coach Penny Cula-Reid said she was thrilled to secure the signatures of three players who will add plenty of value to our VFLW side in 2021:
“For some, the 2020 season brought new challenges, and one of them was the confidence to put yourself out there and see what happens. Lana has not played a lot of high-level football, however since she joined our program we have seen huge improvements. The tall defender hates being beaten and she showed us her ability to adapt and learn new roles. We have been impressed with Lana’s focus and motivation to get something out of every single session this pre-season.”
“Having had her application to play in the VFLW recently signed off by the AFL, Emily brings a wealth of knowledge to our program and communicates so well to the group. She brings a lot of enthusiasm to the training track and can really turn it up in match sim. She is keen to learn more and grow her coaching development alongside her ability to play the game at this level. Emily has a lethal kick and hunger for the football which we continue to see on the football field.”
“Olivia’s personality and charisma is infectious throughout the group, it seems like she has been a part of this program for years. She is continuing to develop a strong understanding of the game and build her fundamentals and we see Olivia being a long-term player for Williamstown in seasons to come.”
