PLAYERS TO WATCH
Position: Medium Forward
An electrifying medium forward, Ford can fly high or get the job done at ground level with remarkable X-factor. He showed in his bottom-age year he is capable of playing through the midfield – a role he wants to grow into – and could do so once he builds his endurance further. In terms of his athleticism and pure footballing ability, Ford is up there with the best, and when he is on fire, he is hard to stop. His highlight reel from 2019 would be something special to watch, including a massive hanger for Vic Metro during the Under 18s trial game at Ikon Park. He had an interrupted preseason but expect him to get going once football returns.

Position: Tall Defender/Midfielder
Pritchard is a talented utility who showed during her bottom-age and middle-age seasons that she can be an elite centre half-back, acting in that quarterback type role. With an equal balance of offensive and defensive traits, the Jets star was able to become a rebounding force leading up to her top-age year, representing Vic Metro as a middle-ager after coming through the Under 16s program. In 2020, Pritchard moved into the midfield where she dominated in the opening three games of the season, winning plenty of the ball, whilst being able to drop back and help her defence, and also assist in setting up scoring chances for her team.
