Ivanhoe Amateurs congratulates Fiona Tansley on becoming our first women’s player to clock up 50 games in Round 2 (April 9).
Fiona is a foundation member of the Ivies, joining the club in 2017.
She won the coaches award in her first season when she played in the ruck and as a forward.
Fiona developed a reputation as a fearless and courageous leader as captain in 2018 – the year the Ivies reached the Division 1 grand final.
She also took on the job as club secretary that year – a massive undertaking.
Fiona is one of several Ivies originals still playing for the club and we all appreciate her ongoing commitment despite injuries over the journey.
Congrats to our great number 8!
