Lions select Pittman with Pick No. 37

AFLW Draftee: Emma Pittman Welcome to the AFLW Lions Den Emma Pittman!

The Lions fifth draft selection (37 overall) of the AFLW Draft, Emma Pittman, is no stranger to elite sport, having previously played as a striker for the Brisbane Roar in the W-League.

The 24-year-old will play as a rebounding defender or medium-sized midfielder at the Lions. 

Pittman is still new to the sport, having only picked up a Sherrin a few years ago after an impromptu training session at Coorparoo.

Now playing for The University of Queensland in QWAFL, Pittman has never looked back.

In 2017, she was named in the QWAFL Team of the Year and represented Queensland in the State Under 23 series against Western Australia.
