AFL Victoria has released the Vic Metro training squad ahead of this year’s U18 National Championships.

The 47 player squad will be trimmed down prior to the Carnival, which will kick off with Metro facing Western Australia at Domain Stadium on June 18th.

Calder Cannons Premiership coach Martin Allison has returned to the role of Metro coach, and is very excited by the opportunity, and the challenges, it poses – comparing taking charge of the squad to being given the keys to a Ferrari.


The Northern Knights lead the way in terms of numbers with 11 players selected – including in-form captain Nick Coffield and excitement machine Jack Petruccelle. Eastern Ranges and Sandringham are just behind with nine representatives. The Ranges, in particular, are represented by a number of players that are highly regarded in this year’s draft with the likes of Jayden Stephenson, Adam Cerra, Sam Hayes, Joel Garner, and the increasingly eyecatching duo, Ryley Stoddart and Trent Mynott.

For Sandringham, bottom age bookends Ben and Max King will no doubt have plenty of eyes on them after already impressing at TAC Cup level.
