Four Panthers Named in SANFL Team of the Year Squad 40-man Squad
Four South Adelaide players have been recognised for their stellar play in 2016 with selection in the SANFL Team of the Year 40-man squad.
Ken Farmer Medallist Brett Eddy headlines the quartet, which also includes dual Magarey Medallist Joel Cross, emerging midfielder Brede Seccull and booming left-footer Tom Fields.
Players in the 40-man squad were nominated based on their form across the entire 2016 minor round.
All 10 SANFL clubs have at least one player selected in the squad of 40, with minor premiers Woodville-West Torrens leading the way with nine. AFL-listed players are only eligible for selection in the SANFL Team of the Year if they meet the league's requirements to be eligible for the SANFL Finals.
The squad will be trimmed to a final 21-player 2016 SANFL Team of the Year, including a captain, vice-captain and coach, will be announced during SANFL Grand Final week.
This year's team has been selected by the SANFL's General Manager Football Adam Kelly, Football Operations Manager Tom Hurley and Media and Publications Coordinator Zac Milbank, as well as Channel 7's Mark Soderstrom and The Advertiser's Chief SANFL Writer Warren Partland.
