South Australia has 16 of the 24 players selected to represent the Central Allies at the 2018 AFL Under-18 Youth Girls Championship on the Gold Coast from July 9 to 13.
After winning both games in convincing fashion against the Northern Territory in May, the Croweaters’ contingent will be led by SANFL Statewide Super Women’s League stars such as Nikki Gore, Katelyn Rosenzweig and Rachelle Martin.
The Central Allies are a new concept, combining the best Under-18 female talent in South Australia and the Northern Territory to play in the national carnival in Queensland.
To be coached by the Northern Territory’s Jimmy Driscoll, the Central Allies will play three matches across next week, with the first contest against the Eastern Allies (NSW/ACT/Tas) on Monday July 9.
With the assistant coaches including SA U18 mentor Bill Economou and AFLW Crows players Ebony Marinoff and Renee Forth, the Central Allies will then tackle Victoria Country (Wednesday July 11) and Victoria Metro (Friday July 13).
