Dani Laidley 10 Fast Facts, Bio, Wiki

Laidley commenced a gender transition in December 2019.

Since 2021, Laidley has become involved with the North Melbourne Football Club again, tossing the coin at the 2022 Pride Round game against GWS Giants and attending other club events with North Melbourne players and management.

Danielle May Laidley is a former Australian rules football coach and player, who played for the West Coast Eagles and North Melbourne in the Australian Football League (AFL) from 1987 to 1997, including in North Melbourne’s 1996 premiership team.

She was the coach of North Melbourne from 2003 to 2009.

Born male, Laidley played and coached in men’s AFL. In November 2020, her lawyer announced that she had transitioned to female and wished to be referred to as Dani.

Laidley grew up in Balga, Western Australia, a working-class northern suburb of Perth.

Lightly built, Laidley first played senior football at the West Perth Football Club in the West Australian Football League and she was recruited to be part of the West Coast Eagles’ inaugural VFL squad in 1987.

Dani Laidley (born Dean James Laidley) was a combative but deceptively skilled footballer who was equally at home in the midfield or backlines and could also operate as a tagger.

After commencing her league career with West Perth she was included in West Coast’s inaugural VFL squad in 1987.

She produced some good football for the Eagles before becoming beset by injury – back and knee issues, the latter requiring a full knee reconstruction – in 1991, when she missed the whole year.

She resumed in 1992 but found it hard to hold down a regular spot and did not make the final twenty-two for that year’s grand final against Geelong, which West Coast won.

In 1993 she was traded to North Melbourne and her career blossomed. Aggressive and hard at the ball she acquired the nickname ‘The Junkyard Dog’, which she allegedly hated. In 1996 she was an important contributor to the Kangas’ grand final defeat of Sydney.

She retired after the 1997 season having played 99 AFL games and kicked 4 goals for North to add to the 52 games and 11 goals registered with the Eagles.

Laidley later coached North Melbourne between 2003 and 2009 with mixed success. She also had stints on the coaching panels of Collingwood, Port Adelaide, St Kilda and Carlton. Her first job after retiring as a player had been as coach of Weston Creek.

Dani Laidley is a former Australian rules football coach and player. He has played for the West Coast Eagles and North Melbourne in the Australian Football League (AFL).
