Richmond confirms that AFLW forward Stephanie Williams and midfielder Jess Hosking will not return to the Club in 2024.

Hosking played 23 games for Richmond in three seasons with the Club, adding to the 30 matches she played with Carlton across five years.

The 27-year-old missed most of 2023 due to an ankle syndesmosis injury.

Williams was traded to Richmond from Geelong in 2022 and featured in the opening five rounds of her debut season at the Tigers before a strained ACL ended her year prematurely. 

The 21-year-old has played nine games at AFLW level.

Richmond Head of Women’s Football, Kate Sheahan, wished Williams and Hosking well for their next chapters.

 “I would like to thank Steph and Jess for their hard work and passion during their time at Richmond,” she said.

 “Jess brought a lot of experience to our program and played her part in some strong periods for us, including featuring in both of our finals last year.

 “Steph brought a lot to our football program and broader Club and even while inactive on our playing list in 2023, Steph has remained engaged and supportive of the team.

 “We wish them both well.”
