The Brothers Bulldogs women’s AFL team will have a new coach in season 2022 after Felicity Tankey was appointed to the position last week.

Tankey brings plenty of experience to the role, including stints in women and junior team roles in the Northern Territory.

She combined her coaching with playing duties, including winning the Northern Territory Thunder’s first women’s premiership.

Brothers Bulldogs are pleased that Tankey will join Wendy Timms (under-10s) and Kieranne Zunker (under-8s) as coaches.

“We welcome Felicity to the club, and we look forward to working with her to encourage more women to play for our great club,” a Brothers Bulldogs spokesman said.
