A team comprising 18 on field and 4 interchange players, will be selected in position by a panel of selectors.
A captain from the 22 players selected along with a coach will also be named
Players need to have been registered and played for the club for a minimum of two seasons during the period 1997 and 2016
A panel of 8 selectors has been chosen to select the team. The selectors are a mix of players, coaches, administrators and life members of the club for a period of ten years or more each and are as follows:
Sean Fitzpatrick – Player from the late 90’s and senior coach in 2002 and 2003 and long term club sponsor
Daniel Johnson – Player and committee member (including President) from the late 90’s and senior coach 2004. AFL Sydney commentator. Life member
Rod Craig – Player from the early 00’s and senior coach in 2011, 2012 and 2013 (premiership)
Ryan Libbis – Player from the late 90’s, committee member, premiership winning lower grade coach and assistant senior coach
Simon Closter – Player in the early 00’s, long term premiership winning senior coach and life member
Cameron Roe – Player from the late 90’s, four time club captain, lower grade coach, long term committee member including current Club president and life member
Brian Cloney – Club committee member from the 90’s including Club President and current Club Vice-President. Life Member
Stu Cloney – Player from the late 90’s and long term committee member, Life member
The eight chosen have been assigned the difficult task of selecting a final 22 players but they all have a deep history with the club over the two decades which will allow them to compare players across these years consistently.
Due to a number of the nominated coaches being on the selection panel, in the interests of transparency and fairness, a separate panel will determine the coach for the Gwawley 22.
Each selector will nominate 22 players and positions and then the most selected players from these teams will be narrowed down through further discussions to come up with a final team of 22 players and a coach to be known as the Gwawley 22 and named at a gala event at Doltone House on Saturday 30th July 2016.
The Club will endeavour to contact all nominated players to advise of their nomination . The Club encourages not just the nominated players but all current and former Sharks / Power players to attend the major event.
