2020 AFL New Zealand Women’s Player of the Year announced

The AFL New Zealand High Performance Awards recognise, acknowledge and celebrate the very best in athletes, coaches, officials, administrators and volunteers and what they offer to the development of AFL in Aotearoa.


The scheduling of the awards for its eighth year was due to take place on April 4th. Due to COVID-19, this will now take place electronically and we encourage you to support those involved and their efforts.

AFL New Zealand would like to congratulate Killarney Morey on winning the 2020 AFL New Zealand Women’s Player of the Year.


Killarney Morey continues to assert her dominance on the sport of AFL.

Killarney reads the game well, has excellent skills and was named as the best for New Zealand in game 2 of the Mornington campaign last year.

In 2019, Morey made history as she was selected for the Eastern Allies for round 2 of the AFLW National Champs after she impressed the selectors playing for Tasmania. No NZ woman has made it that far in the organisations history.
