Running machine Riddell, will look to boost the strength of North Melbourne’s midfield and forward stocks.

After establishing herself at Diamond Creek, Riddell earned selection in the VFL Women’s team of the year.

Captain of MUWFC, the club has high-hopes for the 22-year-old.

“Ash is a ready-made midfielder, with the versatility to play inside, off a wing, or as a half-forward," recruiter Rhys Harwood told North Media.

"She has a great step, elite aerobic capacity, and is terrific user of the ball by both hand and foot. 


“Ash’s performance and commitment whilst training with Melbourne University this pre-season, as well as her outstanding character, made it impossible not to give her an opportunity and reflects in her being chosen to captain Melbourne University in 2018.”
