Previously from the Richmond VFLW side, Richardson has also played for NAB League club, Eastern Ranges as well as Vic Metro’s Under 16 side. With nowhere to go in 2021 due to Richmond’s VFLW side dissolving, Coburg coach Liam Cavanagh was quick to reach out to Richardson about joining the Lions. As well as an impressive footy resume, Richardson can also do it all on the field as a utility with her main strengths her marking and decision-making. With the club’s list boasting a host of experience, Richardson is excited to pass on some of her own learnings to the younger players on the team.
Richardson joins Maddie Edwards, Teagan Brett and Sophie Damon as former Tigers on the Lions’ list, and is one of three current VFL listed Lions alongside Brett and Eloise Gardner. Richardson is on Hawthorn’s list.
