Star Signing - Isabelle Starmer

After losing rucks Meg Ryan (Essendon) and Jamie Norup (retirement) during the off-season, North coach Krissie Steen found the ideal replacement in Central’s Isabelle Starmer.

Selected as the ruck in The Advertiser SANFLW Team of the Year, Starmer is set to also display her talent in key-position roles at either end of the ground in 2023.

This should see her push for selection in the next AFLW Draft, having been monitored closely by scouts during 2022.

One to Watch - Jayde Visser

Described as an ”incredible little footballer” by North coach Krissie Steen, Jayde Visser is ready to make her mark in the Roosters’ League team this year.

Recruited from Modbury FC, Visser has pace to burn and has been showing similar traits to star Croweaters junior Shineah Goody.
