Abbey Holmes has become an inspiration for all Australians after leading change in the sporting industry. With her AFLW career and recognisable media profile, Abbey continues to work as a passionate ambassador for equal sports around the world.
In 2014, Abbey made history as the first female football player in Australia to kick 100 goals in a women’s league. She has collected incredible achievements throughout her sporting career, including finishing in the club’s top 5 for score assists, as well as season highs for disposals and goals. She continues to lead her team’s goal-kicking tally, making her one of the most beloved players in the AFLW.
