Star Bulldog finds new home in mammoth 11-club AFLW trade

Kirsty Lamb has sealed a move from the Western Bulldogs to Port Adelaide as part of an 11-club and 12-player AFLW deal.

Key points:

Kirsty Lamb won the 2018 AFLW premiership with the Bulldogs
Katie Lynch is also departing the Bulldogs to move to the Suns
Maddie Gay is traded from the Demons to the Bombers

The Power will also receive picks 18, 24 and 56 in Monday’s AFLW draft, while giving Lily Johnston to Melbourne, pick number four to the Bulldogs, number 21 to Brisbane and number 44 to Gold Coast.

A premiership player and one-time club leading goal kicker, Lamb will be a welcomed asset in the Power’s midfield following inaugural captain and competition powerhouse Erin Phillips’s retirement.

Lamb, 29, has played 67 matches and kicked 25 goals at the Western Bulldogs since making her debut in the opening round of the first season.

“We are really excited to welcome Kirsty to Port Adelaide,” club list manager Naomi Maidment said.

“She dominates in the contest, has good offensive ability and the capacity to hit the scoreboard.

“She is someone we have kept an eye on over the last couple of years.”

Bulldogs teammate and All-Australian Katie Lynch also departed the club in favour of a move to Gold Coast, while Suns club champion Lauren Ahrens shifted in the opposite direction.

Melbourne premiership player Maddi Gay has also been traded to Essendon, with Collingwood All-Australian Ash Brazill moving to Fremantle.

Named vice-captain of the Magpies in 2019, Brazill leaves the club after 32 matches across six seasons.

The final day of the AFLW trade has been the busiest in the period, with inaugural Sydney player Aliesha Newman moving to cross-town rivals GWS earlier in the day, while the Gold Coast has said goodbye to Essendon-bound Bess Keaney.
