Alice Burke

Height
162cm
DOB
03 October 2002

Being the daughter of a St Kilda legend (Australian Football Hall of Fame inductee Nathan Burke) would be more than enough to bank on heading into a maiden AFLW season, but Alice Burke was determined to carve a name out for herself. Tough and hardworking, the new No.3 provided a reliable presence down back and a strong defensive element to the Saints’ young engine room across her four games in 2021. Season 2022 is likely to see more of those traits come front and centre, with Burke in line to spend time through the midfield alongside the likes of Georgia Patrikios, Olivia Vesely and Tyanna Smith. Despite her rich football bloodline, Burke is a recent convert to Aussie Rules having previously excelled in soccer at state level.
