The North Melbourne Tasmanian Kangaroos have further bolstered the club’s existing star-studded line-up.

Elisha King (Open-Age Signing)
164cm - Utility

A classy distributor, King joins North with the ability to play multiple positions.

An elite junior, King was an All-Australian representative at just 16. The smooth-moving utility is regarded for her capacity to play on a wing or at half-back.

The 18-year-old impressed in her trial with North with her mobility a key strength.

“We felt Elisha was unlucky to miss out on being drafted last year due to injury, and during her trial at the club, she showed some strong athletic qualities that can be hard to find,” Rhys Harwood said.

“Elisha spent some time at the Lions this year as a training squad member so she has some experience in an AFLW environment.  

"We anticipate Elisha developing into a player who can really aid our ball movement with her skills.”
