For the first time since 2019 the VAFA is pleased to announce the Big V Senior Men’s team that will take on Perth Football League on Saturday, July 15 at Elsternwick Park.

Greg Hutchison will coach the Big V side and has selected 28 players (interchange, plus emergencies) in the lead up to the game.

The 28-man squad is represented across William Buck Premier, Premier B, and Premier C Men’s. The 18-players on the field are locked in. The final four players will come from the 10-man interchange bench after this weekend of footy.

Seven players from Old Scotch have been selected, four players from Collegians, and three players from both St Kevin’s and Old Xaverians.

Congratulations to Old Melburnians Josh Freezer who has been selected for the fifth time after making his Big V debut in 2016. Freezer, and Harry Thompson (Old Trinity) are the two selected players from the most recent Big V side to take the field in 2019. They’ll both be out for redemption, along with the rest of the side to return to the winners list.

2022 Anytime Fitness rising star Luke Winter has also been selected after a stellar start to his senior career.

With a bye round scheduled, the VAFA are looking forward to a large crowd attending to support both teams.

Entry is just $11 for adults to cover the game costs, with children U12 free. For those wanting to watch from behind the glass in the comfort of a heated room, an official match day function will run in the Elsternwick Park social room from 12pm to 3pm, with ground entry, all-inclusive drinks and food provided throughout the three hours for just $75.
