Star Signing - McKenzie Dowrick

Excitement surrounds the return of McKenzie Dowrick to Oval Avenue after an unlucky run with injury during her time on Adelaide’s AFLW list.

The 23-year-old forward couldn’t manage an AFLW game with the Crows due to a setback in her ACL recovery but she is tracking towards a healthy campaign with the Eagles.

Boasting a booming left-foot kick, Dowrick will be hoping to rekindle the form she displayed with the Eagles in 2022, which yielded 15 goals from eight appearances.

One to Watch - Imogen Trengove

Recruited from Bute, in the Eagles’ country zone at the top of Yorke Peninsula, Trengove has been impressing on the training track this summer.

Described by coach Narelle Smith as an ”inside-outside midfielder”, the teenager is on the verge of making her debut in the Hostplus SANFLW League this season.

One of five Eagles in the 2024 SA U18 Girls Academy, Trengove has exceptional running power which should hold her in good stead against more experienced opponents.
