Katie Brennan

Katie Brennan played in the inaugural season of AFLW as a marquee signing and captain of the Western Bulldogs. She then led the Bulldogs to the Grand Final in 2017, and despite missing out on the premiership, Brennan was called on stage to hold up the trophy as an integral part of the team.

Brennan kicked fifteen goals in thirteen games with the Bulldogs and was the leading goal kicker in 2019 despite an injury riddled time with the club.

Brennan signed with the Richmond Football Club at the end of 2019 season, joining the expansion club for a fresh start.

The signing was historic as she was the first player to sign with the Richmond Football Club women’s team and was the first AFLW player to sign a two-year contract with a club. She was voted by her peers to captain the club in the inaugural year.

Brennan is the founder of her gym, KB.Performance, which looks to educate, inspire and empower women on and off the field in what is a female focused performance space.

Brennan is also an advocate for mental health, hosting a 24-hour sled push at her gym to raise money for mental health support organisation Beyond Blue.
