There is a strong Goulburn Valley Football League flavour to this year’s AFL Victoria Country One squad.

Nine players from the GVFL, including Rochester on-baller Brendon Hollow and Kyabram’s Tom Sheldon, have been included in the extended 39-man squad.

Coached by Hawthorn great Peter Knights again, the team will be whittled down to 24 ahead of the AFL Victoria Community Cup on July 12.

Victoria Country will take on a representative metropolitan team across three divisions (one, two and under 19) at Kardinia Park, Geelong.

Only four players from last year’s clash against the VAFA remain on the list, with Hollow and Sheldon among them.

GVFL was the most represented league in this year’s squad, with the Ovens and Murray (seven) and Geelong (six) also featuring.

Two representatives from the Murray Football League were also chosen, including Congupna’s Daniel Bowles and Rumbalara’s Brad Dick.

Sheldon’s premiership teammate Jason Morgan also received a nod.

Mt Pleasant’s Tim Hill was included in the 44-man AFL Victoria Country Two squad, released yesterday.

Hill was the only Heathcote and District Football League player to be chosen.

The preliminary under 19 squad will also be announced later this week.
