The granddaughter of 1946 Melbourne Brownlow Medal winner Donald Cordner, Harriet Cordner joined Melbourne as a Category B rookie after five seasons in the National Women’s Premier League Soccer, mostly recently with Melbourne United. The surname Cordner will no doubt strike a chord with many Melbourne supporters. Premiership player Don Cordner played 166 games for Melbourne from 1941-50 and was named in the back pocket in Melbourne’s Team of the Century in 2000, while brothers Denis, Ted and John also played for the red and blue.
Harriet is a talented athlete who played Auskick growing up before changing to athletics and then soccer. As she gets more experience watch her become a key pillar in the Demon’s side.
