The 2024 VFLW Season is just around the corner, with the Pies set to take on the Southern Saints in their opening game of the year this Friday night.

After an agonising defeat in last year’s Grand Final, the team is intent of going one step further this year.

New coach Tom Cashin comes into his first season at the Club with a new-look squad after significant list turnover in the off-season.

Cashin’s positive mindset and focus on development has the team primed for continual improvement throughout 2024 as they aim to reach the decider once again.

With Round One almost here, here’s all the things you need to be across.

Who’s on our list?

New to the Club, Meg Ryan (Captain), Jordan Ivey (Vice-Captain), Sachi Degiacomi, and Alessia Francese have been named as the 2024 leadership group.

Plenty of young players have also joined while a host of those with AFLW experience have signed on as well.

2024 VFLW list: Jordan Ivey, Michaela Maloenberg, Sarah Ingram, Ava Campbell, Carly Remmos, Lilly Pearce, Charli Granville, Erin McKinnon, Meg Ryan, Mel Freeman, Jade Hillas, Kasey Lennox, Marnie Jarvis, Kristen Tyquin, Kaitlyn Day, Jemma Ramsdale, Akayla Peterson, Rebecca Grant, Frances Walsh, Maya Ellin, Jayde Van Dyk, Mikalee Maroney, Olivia Smith, Hannah Dyson, Alessia Francese, Nikki Watts, Melissa Maizels, Hannah Fosbrooke, Sachi Delgiacomi, Grace Osborne, Jaide Anthony, Steph Williams.

What about the coaches?

Tom Cashin will steer the VFLW ship in 2024 after former coach Chloe McMillan moved into a full-time role with the Club’s men’s program.

Cashin has joined the Club after time spent with the Western Bulldogs’ VFLW side where he was a backline and opposition analysis coach.

He will be supported by assistants Jason Brown, former VFLW Pies player Cahlia Haslam, Alice Punaro, Colin Wallington, and Stephanie Binder.

What’s our fixture like?

The 14-Round season kicks off with three away matches for the Pies, before a home game against the Blues in Round Four at Victoria Park.

An Anzac-week double-header with the VFL side against Essendon will come in Round Six, before a maiden trip to Sydney in Round Seven to face the Swans.

Both Sydney and GWS will be competing in the VFLW this year for the first time between Rounds Three to Seven, with the trip to play the Swans the only interstate game for the season.

The Pies will play the Southern Saints and the Darebin Falcons twice this year.

The full fixture can be viewed here.
