Melnikas & Seabrook re-sign for 2019


Williamstown Football Club can announce the re-signings of VFLW Seagulls Ashlea Melnikas and Sally Seabrook for the 2019 season.

Melnikas was limited to just eight games in 2018, due to an achilles injury which restricted her throughout the season. Playing in a number of roles, Melnikas was a standout in the final home & away match against Melbourne University, holding AFLW Best & Fairest Emma Kearney to just 12 disposals in a best on ground performance as a defensive mid. Ash will look for an injury-free pre-season to allow her to continue her development, having come through the ranks of community football.

Seabrook will only continue to develop in 2019 following a top 10 finish in the Club’s Best & Fairest. As former netballer, Seabrook has only been in the game for three seasons, but her ability to cover the ground with the advantageous use of her height up forward or through the ruck was a valuable asset alongside ruck partner Rachael Achampong. The former GWS Academy member will benefit from another VFLW pre-season as she looks to build upon her first season at VFLW level.

“Ash & Sally have just had the one season of exposure at VFLW and we were very impressed with their tireless work rate throughout the season. We will continue to monitor Ash’s progress through pre-season as we are mindful of her injury during the 2018 season and we see great development in both of them at VFLW level which is something as a Club we need to continue to harbour,” said GM-Football Stephen Soulsby
