The Gold Coast SUNS have drafted Academy product Annise Bradfield with the club’s first selection in the 2020 NAB AFLW Draft.
Taken at pick seven overall, Bradfield is a young inside midfielder who plays for Bond University in the QAFLW.
Standing at 172cm, the 17-year-old has played 10 games for Bond this season and been named in the best on four occasions.
Bradfield has spent four years in the SUNS Academy and was also a member of the national NAB AFLW Academy across the past two years.
She first represented Queensland in the NAB AFLW Under 18 Championships as a 15-year-old and has become a regular member of the state team.
Before joining Bond University, Bradfield originally played her junior football at Labrador Tigers and Southport Sharks.
She is also currently a student of reigning SUNS AFLW Best and Fairest Jamie Stanton at Southport State High School.
As the first player to be selected from the Queensland draft pool, NAB will be rewarding Bradfield with a $5,000 portfolio to recognise her outstanding achievement.
She will join the remainder of her teammates for the AFLW pre-season in early November.
