Star Signing

Central District’s strong signing period netted League regulars Jess Schulz and Paige Allan but perhaps the most impressive coup was landing the experienced Nicole Mark from South Adelaide. The 26 year-old has represented her State while also playing important roles for both the Panthers and Roosters in the Statewide Super League. Her guidance should be invaluable for the Bulldogs’ youngsters.


On the Rise - Powerade Breakthrough Player Candidate

Emerging midfielder Lauren Breguet has impressed the Bulldogs’ coaching staff after making her debut with eight matches last season. Still only 17, Breguet is described as fierce competitor who attacks the ball hard whilst boasting a positive mindset. She is also a member of the Statewide Super U19 Girls Squad.

Ones to Watch - Statewide Super SA U19 Squad Members

Lauren Breguet – As mentioned above, Breguet is showing plenty of promise as an attacking midfielder, set to expand on her impressive debut season.

Madison Lane – The small defender is a nice kick of the footy while reading the play well.

Latiah Huynh – The speed machine uses her pace effectively across half-forward or the wing while also being dangerous around goal.

Libby Fiebiger – A reliable on-baller, Fiebiger is making a name for herself with her strong work ethic.
