Steph Chiocci signs new deal with Collingwood

COLLINGWOOD AFLW captain Steph Chiocci is one of five re-signings for the club.

With all players out of contract following the conclusion of the NAB AFL Women's competition, clubs are busily reviewing their playing stocks, with Chiocci, forwards Cecilia McIntosh and Jasmine Garner, young ruck Ruby Schleicher and midfielder Brittany Bonnici confirming they will be back in black and white in 2018.

Garner went down in the history books as the first goalkicker in the AFLW, while Bonnici was nominated for the NAB AFL Women's Rising Star in round six.

The Magpies have been busy players in the trade period, gaining a first-, second- and third-round pick in return for sending their best and fairest winner Nicola Stevens (and their fourth-round selection) to Carlton.
