MELBOURNE and Fremantle were the only clubs to make moves on the second day of the NAB AFL Women’s free agency period, with the Demons re-signing Harriet Cordner and the Dockers nabbing ex-Giant Alex Williams. 

The 24-year-old Cordner, the granddaughter of 1946 Brownlow medallist Don Cordner, played seven games for Melbourne this year before being delisted last week. She has a background in soccer and joined the Demons after impressing at an AFL talent search day. 

Williams, 24, a tall defender from East Fremantle, played the full complement of seven matches for the Giants.

The free agency period ends on Thursday.

In other AFLW news on Tuesday, Hawthorn confirmed it would apply for a licence to field a club in 2019. The Hawks have a team playing in the VFL Women’s competition.
