Donegal star Yvonne Bonner will take part in a Women’s AFL (AFLW) international rookie camp later this week – meaning she will miss Sunday’s Donegal senior ladies final.
Last week, Red Hughs confirmed that Eimear Gallagher was traveling to take part in the ‘Cross Coders’ programme in Melbourne.
Gallagher will have Donegal company with Bonner also to feature.
There are 11 athletes in total from Ireland who have been selected for the camp.
“It’s great and that they might have seen me from playing with club or county, so I’m grateful to get the opportunity to try something new,” Bonner said in an interview with RTÉ.
“There’s going to be a few sessions and testing and different things just to see how we get on.
“It’s only a trial so there’s nothing secure yet. At the end of the camp we could be getting a professional contract as a rookie.”
Glenfin will face Moville in Sunday’s senior final, but will be without ace markswoman Bonner.
