The Gold Coast SUNS have acquired the services of experienced forward Ashlee Atkins for the upcoming NAB AFLW Season.

Atkins joins the club as an undrafted free agent after playing the last five AFLW seasons, two with Fremantle from 2018-2019 and three with West Coast from 2020-2022.

With 36 AFLW games to her name, the 29-year-old brings some highly valued experience to the SUNS AFLW squad.

In her first season with West Coast, Atkins finished third in the club’s best and fairest and finished in the top 10 again in 2021.

Atkins is a dangerous forward with good finishing skills and is also a three-time premiership player with East Fremantle in the WAWFL.

She is expected to join her new SUNS AFLW teammates and begin training next week.
