THE daughters of a couple of former Cats stars have been named in the final Geelong Falcons Girls squad for the 2020 NAB League season.

Mackenzie McGrath (daughter of Tim) and Charlotte Simpson (Sean) are among the 38 names selected by new coach Brendan McCartney.

Both are in their 16-year-old year, which means neither can be drafted until the end of 2022.

As the rule stands, McGrath could go to North Melbourne and Simpson is a chance to join St Kilda with their dads playing seven AFL games at the Roos and Saints respectively.

Impressive midfielder Darcy Moloney has been named captain of the Falcons.

The Colac Imperials product becomes just the second skipper of club’s girls’ team, with Carlton draftee Lucy McEvoy leading the side through its first three years.

Poppy Schaap, Renee Tierney and Lucy Were have been installed as vice-captains.

The Falcons open their fourth season with a trip to RMIT’s Bundoora Campus for a meeting with Gippsland Power.
