Kate Shierlaw's journey, evolving from a delisted Blue to becoming the Co-Captain of St Kilda and a pivotal player in North Melbourne's premiership ambitions, serves as a testament to the rewards of persistence. Following a year outside the elite competition and a stint with the Southern Saints, the key forward received the exciting news of her AFLW return with the red, white, and black, courtesy of partner Emma Kearney.

Shierlaw's strategic football acumen earned her recognition as one of the best minds in the AFLW. Leveraging her vocal leadership and vision, she played a vital role in propelling North Melbourne forward. Her adeptness in creating space and executing effective leading patterns also establishes her as a significant threat in the forward line wearing the blue and white.

Looking ahead, Kate Shierlaw is enthusiastic about the future with the North Melbourne Football Club.
