Two Coastal footballers will get a chance to play at the highest level after being selected in last night's AFLW draft.

Ulverstone's Meghan Gaffney was chosen by Greater Western Sydney at pick 66, while former Devonport junior Lily Johnson was taken by Port Adelaide at pick 80.
Johnson has been playing in the SANFL with West Adelaide, while Gaffney's on-field exploits with Ulverstone and the Tasmanian Devils under 18 team haven't gone un-noticed by talent scouts.
The Coastal pair were among four Tasmanians drafted, with North Hobart's Claire Ransom and Launceston's Madison Brazendale going to Gold Coast and GWS respectively.
