AFLW returns to Arden Street - a Photographic Journey in 9 shots


Arden Street in North Melbourne Australia is where the North Melbourne Kangaroos train in the AFL - the AFL being the Men's Australian rules football competition. We haven't played games here since 1985 though, the stands are gone, replaced with trees.

But it's 2020 now and as well as a Men's team for the last two years we have had an elite Women's team, who play in the AFLW and as they draw smaller crowds we could return to playing real games at Arden Street (which as a benefit is a stroll from my house.)

The Roogirls took on the Gold Coast Suns, and won, here are some shots from the game, played on lovely sunny day in front of 3,280 fans.
