Ashleigh Richards

Height
167cm
DOB
22 October 2003

If St Kilda’s previous first-round selections of Georgia Patrikios and Tyanna Smith are anything to go by, Ashleigh Richards is well-placed to provide an impact of similar calibre in 2022. Originally a defender, she has since thrived in the attacking half of the ground through her toughness and ability to provide scoreboard damage. Richards co-captained Dandenong Stingrays throughout 2021, but also plied her trade with Port Melbourne in the VFLW. The young Saint is set to reunite with fellow Stingrays graduates Molly McDonald, Isabella Shannon, Tyanna Smith and Jessica Matin at RSEA Park.
