Lucy McEvoy headlines a star-studded AFLW contingent that will run a footy clinic for girls for Ocean Grove Cobras Junior Football Club.

The 2019 number two draft pick and Carlton star grew up playing for the Cobras and will join Chloe Molloy (Collingwood), Grace Egan (Carlton), Gabby Newton (Western Bulldogs), Nina Morrison (Geelong) and Millie Brown (Geelong) at the clinic.

The Football Factory is running the clinic on January 17 for girls aged eight and over to come and try Australian Rules football and meet some AFLW stars.

The clinic is a great opportunity to promote girls and womens football in the Geelong and Bellarine Region and encourage more girls to have a try at the game, and hopefully take it up as a sport in 2021 and beyond.

The clinic is being held at Memorial Oval, Ocean Grove, where Lucy played her junior football. The Ocean Grove Cobras Junior Football Club fielded three Under 12 teams in 2020’s COVID-19 affected season.

Ocean Grove had two teams in Under 15s, and is looking to introduce an Under 18s team in 2021.

Visit to register for the clinic, which costs $74 and runs from 9.30am to 2.30pm on Sunday January 17.
