My Life As… An AFLW Star – Melissa Hickey

Melissa Hickey

AFLW Star – Melissa Hickey plays for the Melbourne Demons AFL Women’s team. She’s a marquee player, she’s tough as nails and she’s one of the competition’s best defenders.

Mel is also part of one of the greatest legacy in footy history. Geelong legend Reg Hickey, who the famous Hickey stand at Kardinia Park was named after, was a cousin of Mel’s grandfather. So understandably, all the members of the Hickey family are Geelong supporters.

Now though, there’s a fair chance that plenty of red and blue will start to appear in Hickey households. With six Premierships under her belt at VWFL level, Mel Hickey is now ready to take on the AFLW by storm.

We go one on one with the Melbourne star as she leads the Demons into their first AFLW season. Find out how she plans to bring the club its first Premiership since 1964.
