2016 Club Champion Erin McKinnon drafted by GWS Giants!
Mosman Swans 2016 Best & Fairest Erin McKinnon visited Middle Head Oval late last week having been drafted by GWS in the inaugural national draft for women.
Dear Mosman Swans members,
As a wonderful footnote to a sensational season for the Mosman Swans footy club I am delighted to advise that Erin McKinnon has been drafted by GWS (pick #48) in advance of the inaugural Women's League in 2017.
Coming on the eve of her HSC exams this news is wonderful recognition for Erin who was a foundation member of youth girls footy at this club five years ago. Last month Erin topped a distinguished junior footy career being named club best & fairest in recognition of her outstanding contribution to this football club over many seasons.
Erin managed to put exam preparation aside on the morning of her HSC English exam to claim her slice of history. Erin joins previous Mosman Swans Club Champions, Callum Mills (2012) and Dan Robinson (2006 & 2008) as Mosman Swans players listed by AFL clubs.
Sincere congratulations to Erin and to proud parents Michelle and Bruce. We will continue to watch Erin's progress with much interest. Best wishes also to Erin and all club members currently sitting HSC exams.
