2022 West End State Squad Released

By ZAC MILBANK

SANFL selectors have released a new-look, 38-player West End State Squad to confront the WAFL in Perth on Sunday May 15. 

With the Croweaters’ first training session under coach Jade Sheedy set to kick off at Thebarton Oval on Tuesday night, the initial list of those poised to tackle the Sandgropers at Optus Stadium has been finalised.

The Central District Football Club would like to congratulate Billy McCormack, Kyle Presbury and Travis Schiller who have all be named in the 38 player squad.

Speaking on SANFL Radio, Sheedy said selectors – headed by Chairman Stephen Rowe – had opted for a larger squad this year due to so many players being in strong form.

North Adelaide coach Jacob Surjan will continue as one of Sheedy’s assistants while Norwood mentor Jade Rawlings and Bloods senior assistant Adam Hartlett have joined this year’s West End State coaching panel as it seeks to retain the Haydn Bunton Junior Cup.

The initial West End State squad will be trimmed to 23 players after Round 6 of the Hostplus SANFL League, ahead of the final two training sessions in the week leading up to the clash.

A new State captain will be named in the final week, with last year’s skipper Jack Hayes now on St Kilda’s list.
