AFLW: Armfield joins North

Former Carlton player Dennis Armfield has joined the AFLW Coaching team as AFLW/VFLW Senior assistant coach.

It’s all hands-on deck at Arden St, in preparation for the North Melbourne Tasmanian Kangaroos' inaugural season. 

Armfield's role will support AFLW Coach Scott Gowans and strengthens the club’s off-field setup, with the club being the only AFLW side to have appointed a full-time coach, high-performance manager and operations manager. 

No stranger to the football landscape with 145 AFL games to his name with the Blues, Armfield is currently involved with the Melbourne University Women’s Football Club (MUWFC).

“Dennis brings a wealth of football experience from Carlton in both the men's and women's programs. He was involved with the AFLW side in his final year before retirement,” North football operations manager Laura Kane said.  

“His outstanding community work aligns with our values as a club, so we're excited to have him on board. He'll be a terrific addition to our club.”

The Club also appointed Alex Veitch as AFLW/VFLW High Performance Manager (HPM). 

Veitch’s football experience dates back to the TAC Cup Youth Girls program with Dandenong Stingrays in 2014.

“Alex will bring some terrific knowledge from his time at Carlton, and his experience in the high-performance industry,” Kane added. 

“It’s really important we have a well-resourced team to support our expectations and demands."
