Alice Edmonds (born 31 May 1998) is an Australian rules footballer playing for the Richmond Football Club in the AFL Women's (AFLW).

Early life[edit]

Edmonds was born in Melbourne, growing up around the South Melbourne and St Kilda area.

She completed high school at Caulfield Grammar School, where she was an exceptional rower and basketball player before putting these aside to focus on Australian rules football[1].

After completing high school Edmonds joined the Australian Defence Force, where she was based in Townsville.[1]

VFL Women's[edit]

Edmonds played her first season at VFLW level primarily in the Ruck, where she had a dominant season. Her strong play led to her being named in the VFLW Team of the Year[2].

Edmonds followed up her maiden season up with an even stronger second season, becoming one of Richmond's most important players and the unquestioned number one Ruck at Punt Road. She won the Aunty Pam Pedersen Trophy for best on ground in the VFLW Tigers’ Dreamtime win over Essendon[3].

AFL Women's[edit]

Edmonds was the 11th AFLW signing and the third VFLW Tiger to make the leap to Richmond’s AFLW team as a pre-list open-age signing[3][4].

Player Profile[edit]

Standing 189cm tall, Edmonds has a rare mix of height and athleticism, honed on the basketball court and rowing. She is also a strong overhead mark.[2][5]
