Local footballer Jenna Bruton has re-signed with North Melbourne's AFLW team for the 2020 season.
Bruton took out the club's inaugural Best and Fairest Award this year, and previously played for the Western Bulldogs.
Kaitlyn Ashmore and Emma Kearney are among other players who have re-signed to the club.
Coach Scott Gowans has also signed on for another year with the club, saying that stability in the team with the re-signing of key players like Bruton and Ashmore will be crucially important as the club moves into its second season of the AFLW next year.
This year was North Melbourne's inaugural season in the AFLW.
