The Gold Coast SUNS wish to thank Janet Baird for her contributions over the last two seasons after she informed the club of her decision to explore further playing opportunities with an AFLW expansion club.

Baird has played three games for the SUNS since joining the club from Darwin with pick 54 in the 2020 NAB AFLW Draft.

SUNS Head of Women’s Football Fiona Sessarago wished Baird all the best for her next opportunity.

“We’d like to thank Janet for the sacrifices she has made for our club, including relocating away from friends and family in Darwin to pursue her football career,” Sessarago said.

“Janet will be missed by teammates and staff but we wish her well for next season and beyond.”

Details for the upcoming AFLW Sign & Trade Period will be communicated once finalised.
