AFL Victoria is pleased to announce the Victoria Metro Senior (Community leagues) preliminary squad ahead of the AFL Victoria Community Cup.

The Metro squad will face a representative side from WorkSafe AFL Victoria Country on Saturday July 12 at a destination to be finalised in the coming days.

The selection panel of head coach Brian Royal, and assistants Scott West, Michael Ford, Sean Millane and Steve Teakel have settled on the 43-man squad that includes players from all six leagues that competed in the Metro Championships.

The list includes the six medal winners from the Metro Championships in Murphy Ambrose (VAFA), Simon Taylor (Eastern), Jonathon Morris (Essendon), Ryan Jackson (Northern), Lee Spiteri (Western) and Damien Rayson (Southern).

The squad will eventually be trimmed to approximately 25 with the selection panel acknowledging some players will be unavailable or injured.
