Stephanie Cain was selected with pick no.2 at the 2017 NAB AFLW Draft

Fremantle have almost completed their list for the 2018 AFL Women’s season after selecting seven WA-based players at the AFLW National Draft on Wednesday at NAB Arena.

Each player selected is profiled below.

Pick 2 - Stephanie Cain
Recruited from: Swan Districts, Fremantle AFLW player in 2017
D.O.B.: 4 June 1996 (21 years)
Position: Midfielder
Achievements and awards: 2017 Swan Districts best and fairest and 2017 WAWFL premiership player

Comments from AFLW manager Wade Spilcker
A hard-working midfielder, Stephanie Cain played in six of Fremantle’s seven games in the inaugural AFLW season. Cain was delisted at the end of the season but used the disappointment as a motivation her to return better than ever, winning the Swan Districts best and fairest award in a premiership season. 

Pick 10 - Evangeline (Evie) Gooch
Recruited from: East Fremantle
D.O.B.: 15 October 1995 (22 years)
Position: Midfielder/Defender
Achievements and awards: Winner of East Fremantle’s Best and Fairest in the 2017 WAWFL season. WA State U23 representative.

Comments from AFLW manager Wade Spilcker
Evie is a solidly built midfielder who comes from a soccer background, previously with Perth Glory. 2017 was her first full season of Australian Rules and had previously only played junior representative football at school. Evie has a terrific kick and will add to the Fremantle midfield with her accurate disposal by foot.

Pick 18 - Jodie White
Recruited from: Coastal Titans
D.O.B.: 22 September 1980 (37 years)
Position: Ruck
Achievements and awards: Winner of the WAWFL Fairest and Best award. Multiple WA State Team representative.

Comments from AFLW manager Wade Spilcker
Jodie returned to Coastal Titans where she played for a number of years before a two-year absence from the game. Despite being 37 years of age, Jodie has slotted back into football as if she had never left, winning the 2017 WAWFL Fairest and Best. Jodie has the capacity to go forward and take a good mark but it’s in the ruck where she does her best work, giving first opportunity to her midfielders. Jodie moves well around the ground, providing plenty of targets for her teammates.

Pick 26 - Ashlee Atkins
Recruited from: East Fremantle
D.O.B.: 2 April 1993 (24 years)
Position: Midfielder/Forward
Achievements and awards: Former WAWFL leading goal kicker. Multiple state team representative.

Comments from AFLW manager Wade Spilcker
Ashlee has the ability to play forward and through the midfield as a hard-working inside player who will add strength around the contest. The 24-year-old is a former WAWFL leading goal kicker who has excellent skills by foot and is also impressive when contesting the football.

Pick 33 - Emily McGuire
Recruited from: Swan Districts
D.O.B.: 12 January 1999
Position: Forward
Achievements and awards: 2016-2017 WA State 18s representative. 2016-2017 WAWFL Premiership player.

Comments from AFLW manager Wade Spilcker
Emily missed the draft last year by only 12 days, being too young to be eligible. She’s a forward who can play either in a key position role or as a high half-forward with the potential to push up into the midfield. She’s played in the past two WAWFL premierships for Swan Districts and also represented WA in the State U18s. She’s a highly skilled forward, can take a mark, works hard and has the capacity to be a long-term player for the club in the forward line.

Pick 40 - Alicia Janz
Recruited from: Swan Districts. Played for Fremantle in 2017 as a top-up player.
D.O.B.: 25 May 1990 (27 years)
Position: Ruck
Achievements and awards: 2017 WAWFL premiership player

Comments from AFLW manager Wade Spilcker
Played three games for Fremantle in 2017 as a top-up player. Unfortunately, we were unable to retain Alicia on our list despite her showing some great signs in those three games. Alicia had a terrific WAWFL Grand Final where she went head to head with Jodie White, playing in the ruck for Swan Districts. Alicia is somebody who provides strength around the contest and clears a path for her on-ballers. She’s a really strong tackler and her physical presence will help our midfielders.

Pick 44 - Leah Mascall
Recruited from: Coastal Titans
D.O.B.: 23 May 1990 (27 years)
Position: Midfielder/Defender
Achievements and awards: Multiple WA State team representative. Played for Melbourne, Western Bulldogs and Fremantle in AFLW exhibition matches.

Comments from AFLW manager Wade Spilcker
Leah has been out of the game for just over 12 months having injured her ACL during the 2016 season. Leah has the ability to play as a midfielder and also as a defender. She’s hard-working, makes excellent decisions by hand and by foot and will bring experience to the team. She has played state representative footy for a number of years.
