Jenna McCormick (born 7 September 1994) is a professional Australian sportswoman who plays soccer for Melbourne Victory in the W-League and played Australian rules football for the Adelaide Football Club in the AFL Women's (AFLW) competition.

Early life

McCormick was born and raised in Mount Gambier, South Australia, before moving to Adelaide in 2011.[1] She played junior soccer for Blue Lake SC in Mount Gambier.[2] In Adelaide, McCormick attended Walford Anglican School for Girls and played soccer, cricket and Australian rules football at high levels.[3]

Soccer career

McCormick made her debut in the W-League for Adelaide United in December 2012 in a loss to Melbourne Victory.[4] She usually plays as a midfielder, but was used as a defender by Adelaide in the 2013-14 W-League.[1] McCormick was included in an Australian Schoolgirls team to tour South America in 2013, and was named player of the tournament.[5]

McCormick joined Canberra United in 2015.[6] In 2016, she moved to Iceland to play for Stjarnan in the Úrvalsdeild; making her debut as a substitute in a win over Selfoss.[7] Jenna returned to Canberra United for the 2016-17 season.

In July 2017, McCormick signed to play the second half of the 2017 season with Medkila IL in the Toppserien, the top tier of women's soccer in Norway.[8]

In September 2017, McCormick committed to return to Adelaide United for the 2017-18 W-League season.[9]

In October 2018, McCormick signed to play for Brisbane Roar for the 2018-19 W-League season.[]

In October 2019, McCormick quit AFLW and joined Melbourne Victory on a one-year deal.[10]

Australian rules football career

In April 2016, McCormick declared her interest in playing in the newly formed AFL Women's competition, the first professional women's Australian rules football league.[11] She was drafted by Adelaide in the 2016 AFL Women's draft.[12] McCormick missed round 1 of the 2017 season to play for Canberra United in the W-League semi-final on 5 February 2017.[13] She debuted in round 2 of the 2017 season against the Western Bulldogs, and played seven games including the grand final in the Adelaide team that won the inaugural AFLW Premiership in 2017.

Adelaide signed McCormick for the 2018 season during the trade period in May 2017,[14] and she again missed the opening round of the season due to W-League commitments, joining the team for their round 2 match against Melbourne.[15] She signed with the Crows for the 2019 season in May 2018.[16]
