A courageous defender from the Dandenong Stingrays, Brooke Vernon officially became a Carlton player when she was selected with pick No.26 in the 2019 NAB AFL Women’s Draft. Formerly a forward, Vernon relished a new role down back in 2019, performing a role on taller or smaller opponents with aplomb. Equally as adept at shutting down her opponent as she is rebounding from defence, Vernon’s ball use by foot is one of her strengths.

After leaving Carlton in the off-season between the 2022 AFL Women's first season and the 2022 second AFL Women's season, Vernon was drafted by the Western Bulldogs. The Western Bulldogs have added Brooke Vernon to its playing list for AFLW season seven. Taken with the Bulldogs’ final pick in the 2022 NAB AFLW Draft, Vernon was initially drafted to Carlton with pick 26 in 2019. The 21-year-old managed three AFLW games across three seasons – remarkably two of those against the red, white and blue – before parting ways with Carlton this off-season. Formerly a forward, Vernon relished a new role in defence with the Dandenong Stingrays in 2019, and was rewarded for her form with Vic Country representation. Her ball-use by foot is one of her best strengths, and will significantly bolster the Bulldogs’ defensive stocks in season seven.

Vernon would not add to her games tally and retire at the end of the season.

Recruited from: Dandenong Stingrays/Southern Saints (VIC)
