The Geelong Falcons Girls squad for the 2020 NAB League season has been finalised, with 12 AFL Barwon Female clubs represented in the 38-player list.
The squad features Charlotte Simpson, daughter of former Geelong player Sean Simpson, and Mackenzie McGrath, the daughter of Tim McGrath. Both players are not eligable to be drafted until 2021 due to still being 16-years old.
Former Western Bulldogs senior coach and Melbourne assistant Brendan McCartney will coach the squad, taking over from Falcons Premiership coach Jason Armistead who has moved to an assistant role with Richmond’s VFLW team. Colac Imperials midfielder Darcy Moloney will captain the side, becoming just the second Falcons coach after Lucy McEvoy skipper the side for the past three seasons.
Poppy Schaap, Renee Tierney and Lucy Ware have been named vice-captains. The Falcons will begin their 2020 campaign with a clash against Gippsland Power on February 29.
