2017 McDONALD’S SA U16 SQUAD

Published on: May 18 2017 | Author: Zac Milbank |

A 45-player McDonald’s SA Under-16 Squad has been released to contest the 2017 AFL U16 National Championships in June and July.

To be coached by championship-winning mentor Darel Hart, the Croweaters will be looking to win consecutive titles after claiming last year’s crown.

Training begins on Tuesday May 23, with the McDonald’s SA U16 side to play a trial match against SA’s U17 Futures team at Football Park on Friday June 16.

This will lead in to the first AFL National Championships game which will see SA tackle Western Australia at Leederville Oval in Perth on Sunday June 25.

The remaining two AFL National Championships fixtures will be against Victoria Metro at Metricon Stadium on the Gold Coast (July 10) and Victoria Country at the Gabba (July 14).

Woodville-West Torrens and Sturt lead the way in terms of representation, with both clubs providing eight players in the initial squad, with Glenelg and Central District having seven players selected.

All four of these teams were participants in the 2017 Under-16 Torrens Uni Cup finals series.

With the McDonald’s SA U18 squad featuring four father-son combinations, the McDonald’s SA U16 side also boasts two of its own.

Glenelg’s Luke Edwards is the son of Crows premiership great Tyson Edwards and the younger brother of Jackson Edwards, who has been selected in the McDonald’s SA U18 squad.

The Eagles’ Jackson Mead is the son of inaugural John Cahill Medallist and former Power defender Darren Mead, whose eldest son Mitchell is currently playing for the Eagles in the U18 Torrens Uni Cup.
