Collingwood Magpies’ Emma Grant retires


Grant, who played at both ends of the ground, as well as in the midfield for Collingwood, said she cherished her 20-game career that began in 2017.

“I can’t thank the club enough for the past four years and making my football dream a reality,” Grant said.

“Growing up in the country, playing football with the boys was the only option. I never thought I would get the opportunity to play for an AFL club in a women’s national competition.

“In the end I made the decision to put my health first.”

Collingwood’s women’s sport manager Jane Woodlands-Thompson said Grant had made a lasting impact on the Magpies’ AFLW squad.

“As a foundation player, ‘Granty’ has played a key part in the Pies’ journey and we thank her for the impact she has had on the club,” she said.

“She has been a key leader since Collingwood’s AFLW inception despite her ongoing battle with injury.

“Her resilience and strength over the years is to be recognised and commended.”
