Richmond has announced a further two changes to its AFLW list ahead of tomorrow’s first list lodgement deadline.
The Club recently advised Alana Woodward and Phoebe Monahan they would not be offered contracts for the 2022 season.
Woodward and Monahan were members of both Richmond’s inaugural VFLW and AFLW squads.
Monahan played 12 games for Richmond, adding to the 10 she managed at Greater Western Sydney earlier in her AFLW career.
The defender was a regular in the senior line-up for much of her time at the Club, although she lost her place in the Tigers’ side in Round 7 this year, finishing the season at Port Melbourne.
Woodward, 30, played five games for Richmond in 2020 before a calf injury derailed her 2021 campaign.
After missing out on traditional football pathways, Woodward flourished in the Richmond VFLW program and was one of 11 VFLW Tigers added to the inaugural AFLW list.
Richmond Head of Women’s Football, Kate Sheahan, thanked both players for their dedication throughout their time at the Club.
“Phoebe and Alana have both played an important role in helping to shape our football program across the past four years,” she said.
“It is never easy to have these conversations, especially with foundation players that have been leaders at the Club.
“Both players through their application and work ethic will leave a long-lasting cultural impact on the group. We wish them all the best for their future endeavors.”
Richmond will now look to rejuvenate its list with a strong hand at the upcoming NAB AFL Women’s Draft, which includes two selections inside the Victorian top 10.
Richmond holds picks 5,16,23, and 40 in the National pool.
