Cross-code athlete Brittany Perry has been selected by the Gold Coast SUNS with pick 42 in the 2019 NAB AFLW Draft. 

Perry was drafted to GWS in the 2018 draft and played four matches in her debut season before being delisted.

A talented midfielder, Perry averaged six disposals and three tackles at a disposal efficiency of 59% at AFLW level.

Originally recruited from SANFLW side North Adelaide, Perry is also an established cricketer having played for South Australia in one-day matches and the Adelaide Strikers in the WBBL.

“We had Britt play for us in the Winter Series this year and we knew she was someone we wanted on our list,” AFLW Senior Coach David Lake told SUNS Media.

“She’s an extremely natural player with ball in hand and a genuine goalkicker which makes a dangerous combo in women’s football.”

Standing at 165cm, Perry has deceptive speed and is clever with her ball use.

Playing in the final QW Winter Series match in 2019 for the SUNS, Perry was used as a pressure small forward and reaped the rewards with two goals.

Perry kicked five goals in seven matches at state-league level this year, including being named in the best on four of those occasions.
