WA Women's Football League Dhara Kerr Fairest and Best winners Chelsea Randall (Swan Districts Football Club) and Kiara Bowers (Coastal Titans Football Club).

The Bassendean resident, who has enjoyed a successful year so far, earlier this year becoming the first player to nominate in the first AFL Women’s Draft following a Talented Player invitation and playing at the hallowed Melbourne Cricket Ground during Women’s Round in June.

Randall, who started kicking the football at the age of 11, told the Eastern Reporter she fell into football when the under-11s coach of her brother’s team asked if she wanted to fill in.

She then joined the Safety Bay Stinger’s team before moving across to the Swans women’s team.

Randall said the game had given her so many opportunities both off and on the field.

‘I have met some amazing people along my football journey so far,’ Randall said.

‘Females now have something further to aspire to in football.’
