Iconic women’s sport advocate and star GIANT Chloe Dalton has re-signed with the GIANTS.

Dalton, who has been a GIANT for three seasons, has put pen to paper on a new deal with the club for the 2024 NAB AFLW season.

The 30-year-old tri-code athlete is coming off her best season in the AFLW yet, playing all 10 matches of the GIANTS’ 2023 season in a new role across half-back.

Dalton has participated at the top level in not only AFLW but also basketball and Rugby 7s. The talented athlete grew up in Sydney and was part of the gold-medal winning Rugby 7s team at the Rio Olympics in 2016 before turning her sights to AFLW and playing 16 games for Carlton across 2019 and 2020.

Returning to the competition with the GIANTS in 2022, Dalton overcame injury issues across her first two seasons to take her tally to 16 games with the club by the end of 2023.

Her best season so far, Dalton settled strongly into an attacking half-back role, averaging almost 13 disposals, three tackles and 250 metres gained per match.

GIANTS Executive General Manager - Football Strategy and Operations, Briana Harvey, said the club is thrilled to secure Dalton’s signature.

“Chloe’s coming off a career-best finish in our Gabrielle Trainor Medal after her best season yet in the AFLW, so we’re excited to see her continuing on in the orange and charcoal,” she said.

“She’s an experienced leader given her background in three elite sports so she’s an invaluable addition to our young group both on and off the field.

“Having had her first injury-free season in a long time, we’re excited to see where she can continue to grow her game in the future.”

A star on and off the field, Dalton is also known for off-field work in the sporting landscape as a fierce advocate for equality in sport via her platform, the Female Athlete Project.
