Ashley Sharp has hit the big league playing for the Fremantle Dockers in the AFL Women’s League, but the former High Wycombe Junior Footy Club player returned to where her journey to elite footy all began to present the club with a NAB Club Recognition Award.

Sharp was named the round 3 AFL Women’s Rising Star nominee and nominated her old club to receive the award.

The award includes $1000, Sherrin footballs and a range of equipment to help the club develop footy’s future stars.

High Wycombe Junior Football Club president Floyd Sullivan was very grateful to Ashley for presenting the pack at last week’s training session.

“Our club encourages all kids and kids with all abilities to be part of our club, and will be fielding a Youth Girls team in next year’s Youth South East Girls Competition,” he said.
