A key defender, Tanya Hetherington is the captain of Diamond Creek in the VFL Women’s competition in Victoria. Hetherington spent 18 months on the sidelines after tearing her ACL before returning to play every game this season, leading her side to the VFLW Grand Final and being named in the VFLW team of the season. While out with injury, the 32-year-old coached Diamond Creek and will add valuable leadership and insight both on and off the field for the GIANTS.
