Strathmore Community Bank Branch Coburg FC Team Selection: Round Ten V Essendon


Coming off the back of last week’s bye, Coburg has selected the squad to take on Essendon this Sunday at Windy Hill.

The side sees all four leadership group members featured, including Nick Mellington, who returns after sitting round eight out due to a suspension.

Ball-magnet Marcus Lentini will get another chance to show his potential in the midfield, while Mark Orr comes into defence.

At the other end of the ground, James Belo, Pete McEvoy and Josh Weightman will all work together in the forward-line.

Fan favourite Luke Bunker has his sights on his first appearance of the 2018 competition, named as a possible inclusion after recovering from a knee injury sustained in the preseason.

Mitchell Podhajski from the Calder Cannons is also a potential inclusion, named on the extended bench alongside Jack Murphy, Josh Iacobaccio, Michael Ercolano, Harry Nolan, Tyson Lever and Jay O’Donoghue.

New signing Sam Binion retains his spot as 23rd man.

The team will be finalised closer to Sunday’s match, but for the full squad see the graphic below.
