Former Crow Chloe Scheer and former Demon Chantel Emonson are headed to GMHBA Stadium after joining the club this month’s AFLW Sign & Trade Period.

Denby Taylor has made the decision to take a break from football; the 21-year-old will officially be placed on the inactive list for season six of the AFLW.

Danielle Higgins, Julia Crockett-Grills, Nina Morrison, Millie Brown, Stephanie Williams and Maddy Keryk already held contracts for the 2022 season.

Geelong’s Head of AFLW Brett Johnson said the club was thrilled to confirm the latest re-signings.

“Our people are the heartbeat of our club. It’s fantastic to have this talented group of players commit to the club as we head towards season 2021/22,” Johnson said.

Geelong hold selections 2, 7, 9 and 20 in the upcoming AFLW Draft.
