Heading the list is Kalangadoo coach and ex-Glenelg skipper, Ben Mules and is joined by fellow MSEFL Mail Medallists, Dylan Coxon (Robe) and Will Macdonald (Port MacDonnell). At age 31, Mules is the oldest of the 34 members of the training squad with Tantanoola newcomer Jack Dawe being the youngest at just 17. PORT MACDONNELL: Joel Feast. Among the other newcomers to the league and included in the training squad are dual West Gambier premiership player Joe Ferguson-Lane, from Hatherleigh and Mount Burr’s new coach Frazer Scanlon. Current ladder leaders, Tantanoola and Mount Burr have the most representatives in the training squad with six while the seven other MSEFL have at least two. The names of Glencoe’s Adam Price and Kalangadoo’s Chrissy Mules are missing from the squad, however, both ex-MSEFL skippers have been on the sidelines with injury so far in 2014. Reappointed MSEFL coach Jeff Medhurst expects the team will give a good account of themselves. Medhurst is not yet aware of any players who have declared themselves unavailable for selection. “We will see after the training squad is released,” Medhurst said. He will oversee the first of two training sessions at “Mick” and Jean Walker Oval at Mount Burr at 10am on May 11. The team will be announced after the final training session at Glencoe at 6pm on May 15. After winning at Robe in 2011 and Pinnaroo in 2012, the MSEFL had its colours lowered by Mallee at Kalangadoo last June. Long-time followers of the MSEFL cannot recall the league ever playing on the Tintinara Oval. It is the home ground of the Border Downs Tintinara Football Club and is located within the town limits and on the eastern side of the Dukes Highway. The MFL was formed in 1994 when the Lameroo and Districts Football League and the Murraylands Football League amalgamated. NANGWARRY: Matthew Fatchen. There were seven clubs involved THE COACH: Former Mount Burr premiership coach, Jeff Medhurst will coach the MSEFL representative team for the second year running. with Karoonda Districts, Lameroo, Murrayville, Ngallo, Parilla / Geranium, Peake and Districts and Pinnaroo. Parilla/Geranium went into recess in 1998 and Ngallo followed in 2001. Border Downs Tintinara joined the MFL in 2002 and there have been six clubs since that time. With its much closer proximity to Adelaide, the Mallee is often bolstered by capital city players.
