Bakewell-Doran heads into 2023 on the back of a remarkable first season as a fulltime-contracted SSN player.
The exciting and eye-catching defender with a hunger for winning the ball went from rising star to international representative in the space of six months, capping the year with her Australian Diamonds debut against New Zealand in October.
