Charlie Rowbottom

22 January 2003

Entering her second season at AFLW level, Rowbottom will be looking to build off the impressive foundations she set in her debut season.

The 19-year-old was the No. 1 pick in the 2021 NAB AFLW Draft and is a powerful midfielder who can also cause serious damage inside 50 with her finishing skills. At 180cm, Rowbottom adds a physical presence to the Suns midfield, while she also has the ability to go forward and hit the scoreboard through her overhead marking and booming kick. After a season which saw her average 16 disposals and 11 contested possessions per game, Rowbottom was named the 2022 Best First Year Player by the AFLPA and finished second in the 2022 NAB AFLW Rising Star Award. She also claimed second place in the 2022 Suns AFLW Club Champion award.
