New Glenelg coach Aleks Bojanic has revealed the Tigers have left as many as 10 spots vacant on their list ahead of the 2018 SANFL Statewide Super Women’s League.
Replacing Narelle Smith, who will remain involved at Brighton Road in both the Men’s and Women’s programs, Bojanic is keen to unearth fresh talent for next year’s campaign.
Speaking on SANFL Radio, the 2014 Blackfriars Old Scholars premiership coach said any interested players were welcome to contact the club on 8294 5333 to arrange a trial at training, which began at Westminster School this week.
Inaugural captain Cassie Hartley is returning for the Tigers, in a boost for the club’s leadership profile on and off the field after playing an important role across half-back last year.
Star forward Lexia Edwards has also signed on for 2018, with Bojanic confirming the former netballer will again be a focal point in attack.
Former Adelaide United soccer player Jessica Waterhouse is yet another ”code-hopper” who has chosen to play at Glenelg.
Glenelg had three players selected by Adelaide in the AFL Women’s Draft, with Jess Allan and Eloise Jones having their eligibility hinging on the Crows success while newly-selected rookie Brianna Walling is likely to spend the full season with the Bays.
Also boasting a background in coaching women’s basketball, Bojanic said he was excited to take charge of Glenelg in the expanded SANFL Statewide Super Women’s League for next season.
