Port Adelaide


Gemma Houghton

31 December 1993
Key Forward

Marquee player Gemma Houghton joins Port Adelaide as one of the most athletic players in the competition.

The two-time All-Australian is currently seventh on the AFLW’s all-time leading goalscoring list, a testament to her accuracy in front of goal. Her blistering pace, aerial skills and ability to turn games around makes Houghton a particularly dangerous asset – confirmed by her status as one of the best forwards in the AFLW. Despite being born and raised in Western Australia, Houghton was a Port Adelaide supporter growing up and has since taken up an additional role within the club’s community team where she works closely with the club’s Aboriginal Programs. She is affectionately nicknamed ‘Aunty’ – a moniker stemming from both her warm, maternal nature and Indigenous roots.
