Sophia McCarthy

Height
179cm
DOB
19 June 2002
Position
Key Forward

A genuine key forward who thrived in her first season of senior women’s football, Sophia McCarthy kicked nine goals in 13 games for a struggling Williamstown VFLW side.

Originally from Benalla where she played with the Murray Bushrangers, McCarthy has a beautiful natural leap and fly at the ball and is a deadly contested marking threat despite her age and frame. While lacking searing pace and agility, she’s mobile for her size and position and could have the potential to play in a linking role, however is most comfortable at full-forward. Possessing a classy kick and clean hands, she looks like she has the ability to immediately contribute at senior level but certainly has huge upside.
