THE 2019 NAB AFL WOMEN’S Draft took place at the Melbourne Showgrounds on Tuesday, as the Demons recruited four new faces to the club.
With pick No.54, 72, 77 and 78 in hand, Melbourne had to wait until the third round to get its first player, but walked away with some exciting talent ahead of the 2020 season.
Check out the Dees' newest additions below.
Pick No.54 - Jacqueline Parry
Jacqueline Parry will be returning home to Victoria after putting her name in lights with some consistent performances in Canberra.
After beginning her sporting career in soccer, Parry has picked up football and adapted quickly.
She is a tall forward who will be a target inside 50 for Melbourne and knows how to present on the lead.
Pick No.72 - Brenna Tarrant
Brenna Tarrant is a versatile player from Western Sydney who can take a strong overhead mark.
She was named in the back pocket of the NAB AFLW Under-18 All Australian team after a consistent year for the East Coast Eagles, but also kicked a bag of four goals earlier in the season.
At just 18 years of age, Tarrant provides flexibility for Melbourne and will continue to develop in the coming seasons.
Pick No.77 - Gabby Colvin
Gabby Colvin will fit in well at the Demons having played alongside a number of the girls during her past three seasons at Darebin in the VFLW.
The 28-year-old couldn’t have done any more to earn her opportunity and will be a great addition to Melbourne’s program.
At 174cm, she provides versatility down back, with the ability to play on both talls and smalls.
Pick No.78 - Krstel Petrevski
Krstel Petrevski has impressed in the midfield for the Calder Cannons since making the move over from Western Australia.
With balance, class and poise, Petrevski will be an exciting player to watch when she gets her chance at AFLW level.
The youngster is clean at ground level and has football talent running through her veins, being the cousin of Carlton's Sam Petrevski-Seton and Melbourne's Toby Bedford.
