Kennedy Cherrington commits to Eels

The Parramatta Eels are excited to announce the re-signing of Kennedy Cherrington for the next three NRLW seasons.

A NSW Origin and Australian representative, Kennedy was a key member of the Eels team that played in the Club’s first NRLW Grand Final last season.

Kennedy said she has found a home at the Eels and is thrilled to continue her career at the Club.

“I love this Club, it has felt like home for the last two seasons and I’m so grateful to be able to commit long term to the Eels.

“Making it to the Grand Final last year was definitely one of my career highlights, but winning it all is the goal and that’s what I hope to achieve with our team this year.

“I absolutely love playing rugby league at the elite level and it’s an honour to be part of the growth of the women’s game,” said Cherrington.

The 24-year-old forward was part of the Eels inaugural women’s team and has made her mark, becoming a fan favourite with her passion, energy.

General Manager of Football Mark O’Neill welcomed the signing, the first three-year deal for the Eels NRLW team.

“Kennedy is such an important part of our women’s program and has shown what a leader she is both on and off the field,” O’Neill said.

“She brings energy and passion to our team and is a mentor to our younger players coming through our Elite Pathways system.

“On top of her immense talent on the field, she also dedicates her time to charities close to her heart, which earned her the Veronica White Medal in 2022 for her outstanding work in the community. She’s a wonderful ambassador for our club and game.”

NRLW pre-season training begins in May, with the competition to kick off in July.
