Richmond has made their eighth AFLW signing with Hannah Burchell joining the Club as a delisted free agent.

Burchell, 24, made her AFLW debut for Geelong against GWS in Round 7 this year.

Known for her speed and two-way running, Burchell graduated onto the Cats’ inaugural AFLW list after two standout seasons in their VFLW program.

Richmond Head of Women’s Football, Kate Sheahan, said the Club jumped at the opportunity to sign Burchell who had been commuting to Geelong from Melbourne.

“Hannah’s been a part of the Geelong program for the past three years and has developed into a really skillful, energetic player,” she said.

“She is a life-long Richmond fan and the kind of uplifting personality that we think will be a great asset to have around our group.

“We’ve already got to know Hannah and cannot wait to have her here and involved. We feel her football will really benefit with less travel demands here in Melbourne.”
