Crows 2019 premiership player Hannah Martin will miss the 2020 AFLW season after rupturing the anterior cruciate ligament in her right knee while playing for NT Thunder in the VFLW on Saturday.
Crows General Manager of Football Administration Phil Harper said the Club would rally around the 22-year-old in the months to come.
“We are devastated for Hannah as she played so well for us last season and had taken her game to another level in her six games with the NT Thunder this year,” Harper said.
“We will support Hannah and get her the best medical and rehabilitation support possible to have her back fit for AFLW 2021.”
Martin will have surgery in the coming weeks.
