Newton placed on Inactive List

Western Bulldogs midfielder Gabby Newton has been moved from the Club’s primary AFLW playing list to its Inactive List for the 2022 NAB AFLW season.

Western Bulldogs midfielder Gabby Newton has been moved from the Club’s primary AFLW playing list to its Inactive List for the 2022 NAB AFLW season.

Newton recently underwent a dual shoulder reconstruction and will subsequently miss the upcoming season.

“The best thing to help manage and minimise further shoulder injuries was to operate, but unfortunately this has meant sitting out the 2022 AFLW season,” Newton said.

“While it’s not ideal, it’s important I take the time to rehab now and get my body back to 100% for seasons 2023 and beyond.

“I’ll still stay involved with the team off-field and help out in any way I can – I’ll be cheering loud from the sidelines all year.”

The former number one draft pick has not missed a match since making her AFLW debut in the opening round of the 2020 season.

Bulldogs’ General Manager of Women’s Football, Debbie Lee, said Newton will continue to be an important member of the team.

“It’s disappointing we won’t see Gabby in the red, white and blue for the 2022 season, but we all know Gabby is a true professional and understands that her health comes first,” Lee said.

“Gabby knows that she is a long-term player for the Club, and will continue to do everything she can to recover and get back for season 2023.

“Gabby is a much-loved person here at the Kennel, and will be instrumental in the program throughout our 2022 campaign.

“We have no doubts she will provide great support and encouragement for our players, and continue to have an impact both on and off-field.”

Newton will also support assistant coach Natalie Wood with the midfield this upcoming AFLW season.
