The Central Shakers have locked in several experienced Premiership campaigners for the 2024 season. Sam Lightfoot, Izzy Goodwin, Anna Muru Paenga, Sam McCombie and Jess Whattam have all been secured by the Shakers.
Sam Lightfoot and Izzy Goodwin have both come through the AFL New Zealand Youth and Academy programs and were both involved in the Youth Kahu’s unbeaten streak against Australian sides.
Anna, Sam and Jess all have a previous premiership campaign under their belts, and are all key players in the Wellington AFLW. All three players will be a big part of the Shakers for the upcoming season.
All five of these players will also be pushing for a spot in the Kahu side that will be heading to the Pacific Cup in November next year
The Shakers are starting to build a strong squad which will look to take the side to back to back premierships.
The 2024 AFL New Zealand Women’s premiership starts February 25th 2024
