Crows AFLW inaugural premiership winning star Jenna McCormick has rejoined Adelaide United’s W-League side after a two-year hiatus.
The 23-year-old Mount Gambier-born centre back created history this year when she became one of many cross code athletes that became instant household names in the AFLW’s first season.
McCormick starred for Canberra United’s W-League side last season before embarking on an AFLW career.
She looks set to rejoin the Crows after completing commitments with the Reds this season.
“I’m super excited to be coming back home to Adelaide United and to play in red again,” McCormick said. “It’s great for me to be in my home environment around my family after being overseas for some time.”
McCormick played 26 matches for the Reds, winning the club’s player of the year award in 2014 before signing a deal with Canberra United in 2015.
The also joined Iceland’s Stjarnan Women last year and Norway’s Medkila this year.
McCormick last year won the Icelandic soccer championship with Stjarnan before making her Crows AFLW debut a week after Canberra was knocked out of the W-League finals race.
She starred for the Crows, kicking her first goal in a 25-point win over Western Bulldogs in front of 7669 fans at Whitten Oval.
McCormick then featured at home in an AFLW match for the first time against Carlton in a top-of-the-table clash at Thebarton Oval in February.
Adelaide kicks off its W-League season on November 3 with an away clash against Western Sydney before facing Matildas superstar Sam Kerr’s Perth Glory at Marden Sports Complex a week later.
