Daisy Pearce

AFLW Pioneer. Expert Commentator. Mother.

Hailing from country Victoria, Daisy Pearce is a pioneer of Women’s Football in Australia. One of the AFLW’s premier stars she has been at the avant-garde of the fast-expanding women’s game since it’s conception on the national stage in 2016.

With the AFLW only in it’s infancy, Daisy already boasts an astounding resume. Captain of Melbourne’s first two seasons (2017 & 2018) she won both Best & Fairest in those years, whilst also being named a 2x All-Australian representative. Along with this Daisy also has had an esteemed career in the VWFL/VFLW. Her resume extends off the field where she is also a practicing mid-wife.

Expecting twins, Daisy sat out the 2019 AFLW’s season, her time however was not spent in idle. She further established herself as an expert analyst for the Seven Network and on radio for SEN, in addition to this she also continued her work at Melbourne, taking on an off-field role mentoring the club’s first-year players.

Daisy is a humble, bubbly and caring character. With her passion for the game still strong, she is already back in training in preparation for the 2020 season.

NC Management can’t wait to see Daisy running around again with her young family cheering from the stands.
