AFTER nearly four months of training, the Geelong Falcons have settled on their 60-man list for the 2020 NAB League season.

And there’s plenty of familiar surnames on the list.

Among those with links to past and present VFL/AFL players include;

  • Jay Dahlhaus – cousin of Luke (Western Bulldogs/Geelong).
  • Jeremy Goddard – brother of Hugh (St Kilda/Carlton)
  • Macklan Lord – grandson of Alistair (Geelong).
  • Charlie Ham – brother of Brayden (Essendon).
  • Jack Sarcevic – son of Ray (Geelong).
  • Will Kilpatrick – son of Glenn (Essendon/Geelong).
  • Indi Parish – brother of Darcy (Essendon).
  • Ollie Henry – brother of Jack (Geelong).
  • Sam Witherden – brother of Alex (Brisbane Lions).
  • Henry Walsh – brother of Sam (Carlton)
  • Darcy Chrigwin – grandson of Brian (Geelong)
  • Sam Bourke – nephew of Damian (Geelong/Brisbane Bears) and Tim (Geelong/North Melbourne).

Bourke, Chirgwin, Sarcevic, Goddard and Dahlhaus are among the seven 19-year-olds allowed on the Falcons list.

Also given a chance to impress as an overage player are James Paterson (Ocean Grove) and Jack Fischer (Old Geelong).

The Falcons will take part in the annual testing day at Maribyrnong College this weekend before a practice match against the GWV Rebels at Ballarat’s MARS Stadium on March 15.

The 2020 NAB League season starts at GMHBA Stadium on March 21 with a clash against the Bendigo Pioneers
