Donegal ladies football star Katy Herron has signed a deal with ALFW side the Western Bulldogs for the 2020 season.
Herron, who has signed an international rookie contract, will be playing alongside Tipperary’s Aisling McCarthy.
“Sport is a huge part of my life and to get the opportunity to focus solely on that and play in Australia is very exciting,” Herron told the club’s website.
“I am very appreciative of the support the Club has shown me so far and I can’t wait to meet everyone in person.”
The Bulldogs’ AFLW List Manager, Michael Sandry, said Herron has the attributes to be successful.
“Katy’s work rate in her Gaelic football was what really stood out to us initially,” Sandry said.
“Her repeat efforts in transitional running is exceptional and something we think will be really valuable in our team. Katy has quickly adapted to the oval ball and is able to kick on both sides of her body, which we also value highly.”
Herron now becomes the 13th ladies footballer to sign for an AFLW club for the 2020 season.
