West Coast Eagles

West Coast Eagles


Andrea Gilmore

27 October 1988

Former West Coast Fever netballer Andrea Gilmore has been champing at the bit for an AFLW opportunity after being elevated from train-on to injury replacement status with the Eagles last year. She plied her trade with Claremont's WAFLW team, but missed the entirety of the Tigers' 2019 campaign due to complications arising from an ACL injury sustained in 2017.

After debuting in round one against Adelaide in 2021, Gilmore played just three matches but suffered a concussion against Brisbane and did not play again. But now she's back to full fitness and ready to seize a senior opportunity with both hands. The 32-year-old, who stands at an intimidating 183cm, is incredibly athletic for her height. Gilmore is a strong marking target who also has the ability to pinch-hit in the ruck when required.
