Interview with AFLW player Kirsty Lamb

Kirsty Lamb was chosen to play cricket for Victoria at only 18 years of age. She was then picked up by the Melbourne Renegades in the Big Bash League.

Once the AFLW competition was announced in 2016, Kirsty switched codes in the inaugural draft and was chosen by the Western Bulldogs, which started her incredible footy career.

Western Bulldogs Best and Fairest Winner in 2022. 2018 Premiership Player. 2022 AFLPA’s Most Courageous Player. 2022 All Australian. Amazing achievements in only five years.

However, what most don’t know is that Kirsty has been battling plantar fasciitis for the last two AFLW seasons making training and playing very difficult.

Our podiatrist, Sam Davies was able to sit down with Kirsty and chat about her career and injury management.

Yet during the 2nd quarter of the grand final, Trent suffered a severe left foot injury that forced him to go off. Sixteen months later he retired from AFL football- unable to get his foot conditioned to perform at such a high level again. Frankston Foot Clinic was fortunate enough to be able to sit down with Trent and discuss the injury including rehabilitation and the specific trauma it went through
