THE 2019 Division 1 Team of the Year has a very fresh look about it.
Only four players from the 2018 team have backed up and made the cut in 2019, with minor premier, East Keilor, filling six of the 22 available spots.
The Cougars’ impressive recruiting haul paid off in 2019 and four of their new additions have ended up in the Team of the Year, with Grabowski brothers Nick and Josh both slotting into the midfield, while Nathan Lyons (wing) and Ben Caluzzi (half back flank) are also in the starting 18.
After booting 52 home-and-away goals, Dion Hill earned his first Team of the Year nod at full forward, while last year’s Team of the Year captain, Ash Arrowsmith, has moved from the half back flank in 2018 into centre half back this time around.
Eventual premier, Craigieburn, also has solid representation in the side, with four Eagles getting the tick of approval from the coaches.
