Eight GFL stars are in contention to represent Vic Country next month in the Brian Molony Cup clash against the Victorian Amateur Football Association (VAFA).
Newtown & Chilwell duo Rob Condy and Matt McMahon, Colac’s Campbell Floyd and Geelong West Giant Chris Moreland, who played in Country’s win over Vic Metro in Bendigo last year, have been named along with Moreland’s West teammate Jayden Symes, North Shore coach Jason Davenport and St Mary’s Dobson brothers, Ben and Sam.
All eight players featured in the Geelong Football League’s Interleague victory over the Mornington Penninsula at the MCG last month, to remain the number one ranked community football league. The GFL also boasts the most players in the Vic Country squad along with Ovens & Murray.
WorkSafe AFL Victoria Country Football Manager Jim Cail said the 2017 Brian Molony Cup presented country Victoria’s top community players with the opportunity to showcase their skills.
“The Brian Molony Cup provides an opportunity for some of country Victoria’s best senior players to test themselves against the top talent in the state.
“For some players, the Brian Molony Cup will be the highest level of football they will play in their career, while for others, it is a chance to move a step closer to achieving their AFL dreams,” he said.
The side will be coached by former St Kilda captain Danny Frawley, in the bi-annual match that kicks off at 2.15pm at Frankston City Oval on July 8.
