And our womens team has an oval on which to play their games, at Casey. 

And we have a seconds team, to assist with bringing players back from injury, before having to play in the senior Casey team.

In addition to the return of Mitch Gent and the arrival of big Blake McGrath as mentioned above, another signing is former Sandringham and Noble Park player Yilber 'Bella' Zijai.

TAC cuppers Tom Glen, Danny Allsop, Kyle Beveridge, Kirk Dickson, Lachlan Gill-Renouf and Charlie Martello of the Dandenong Stingrays and Trent Armour, Kieran Byers, Ethan East, Keenan Hughes, Jai Rout and Nathan Voss of Gippsland Power are all training with the Casey Demons.

Has anyone any update on the Casey squad additions and departures for 2017.

Not much to update at this stage but the VFL website has a link to VFL list changes for 2017 which will continue to be updated as further list changes are confirmed by clubs.

At this stage there's less information on the site than in previous posts above but I believe the list will be finalised soon. 

CASEY

- In: Ben Giobbi (Noble Park) / Yilber Zijai (Sandringham)

- Out: Yarran Jaffer-Williams (Port Melbourne) / Declan Keilty (Melbourne AFL) / Oscar McInerney (Brisbane AFL) / Tim Smith (Melbourne AFL)

A couple of players from Frankston in Nathan Foote and Nathan Gardiner have been mentioned (along with big McGrath) as possible recruits from that club which is currently in recess.

I must say that it's time the Casey Demons got the website up and running so that fans could be better informed. Perhaps they're going to run it as part of the MFC site?

Which reminds me I need to update my avatar.

Even though Dec no longer plays for Casey, the family still wanted to support the club/players as we owe many thanks to the program. Mum contacted one of the staff members who suggest we sponsor a player, and for various reasons (financially stress, local boy who comes from our area etc.) we decided to sponsor Aloysio Ferreira.

Aloysio had a great run in the backend of the season so we were more than happy to help him out. 

This morning he gave Mum a phone call to give his thanks, and mentioned that he and a few others will be participating in the Intra-club game tomorrow night. Should be good to see some of the gun Casey boys run along side the best of the best.

"Casey was a demon possessing a bartender in Ohio. Unlike her other demon brethren, she did not do any direct harm to humans. She also was willing to follow Sam if he chose to lead the demon army."

At least this confirms that there is a Demon posessing (father) Gill! :lol:

Paul Amy of the Herald Sun is tweeting that the Casey Demons FC have locked in Gippsland Power graduates  Kieran Byers, Ethan East, Jai Rout, Trent Armour and Keenan Hughes. 

Other signings are ex-Dandenong Stingrays Tom Glen, Lachlan Gill-Renouf and Dan Allsop, and Sandringham's Liam Hiscock.

Amy has also written in his paper's local edition that former Noble Park and Sandringham player Yilber “Bella’’ Zijai, trying his luck at Casey Demons in the VFL this year, did well in Melbourne’s intraclub hitout last Friday.

Terribly disappointed to see that Matthew La Fontaine of the Dandenong Stingrays has joined Collingwood VFL. With that name he should be at the Casey Demons.

I thought La Fontaine was unlucky not to get a rookie spot. Like James Harmes he has guts pace and footy smarts. See how he develops at Scum land.

Yes looks like we have added about 10 players from TAC and suburban footy. Thomas Glen and Dan Allsopp are the ones to watch. Whilst some development league players have moved on, core Casey to remain. 

Anyone know if Mitch Gent is back to Casey for 2017???

Yes, Mitch is back at Casey this year.

I haven't got this on any authority from the club but it would appear that this is not going to be a very high profile game and it's not likely that many Demons will be lining up. 

Perhaps we will see JW line up for his first out of 2017 KC?

No OD. I believe that the club's already announced that it has ruled out an appearance by JW.

I suspect that this is a game for which the Casey listed players will be given an opportunity to impress without much input from the MFC listed players. The Redtails are not a full time NTFL side and apparently will be bringing a number of youngsters. In all likelihood (and no offence intended), they would probably get spanked if they had to face a team full of AFL listed players like JW and a few of the others who would be in the Demons' best 22. A game against mainly VFL listed players would be a good hit out for both groups.

    OUR GRAND OLD FLAG by George On The Outer

    When an AFL Grand Final approaches, supporters look for omens to help them foresee how their team will fare in the contest.   Melbourne supporters were, until just before Saturday’s opening bounce, the best in the business at looking for positives to give them hope and direction - a natural feeling after 57 years in the wilderness. So when the Bulldogs’ streamers kept slipping from the handle of the Premiership Cup as Glen Jackovich delivered it to Optus Stadium, they wondered whether it

    THE ICING ON THE QUAKE by Whispering Jack

    It’s not Christmas yet but if the Melbourne wins its last game of the 2021 season, then many of its fans will be celebrating early. There already are some parts of our town where the pending festivity is preordained. Houses are decked out with red and blue banners and streamers, some of which appeared as early as last Saturday week, on the morning after the Demons’ magnificent 83-point crushing of Geelong in their preliminary final at Optus Stadium. While it’s great to see the numbers of lo

    CAT SKINNING by George On The Outer

    When they defeated the Geelong Cats in the 2021 AFL Preliminary Final on Friday night in Perth, Melbourne proved that there is more than one way to skin those cats.  They did it in the ruck and in the middle, they did it in the forward line, they did it in defence and around the ground, but importantly, each and every player a Demon guernsey spent his night at Optus Stadium skinning an opponent. Following the after-the-siren win against Geelong in Round 23, there was an expectation of

    THE POINTY END by The Oracle

    The AFL’s two oldest clubs, Melbourne and Geelong, face off on Friday evening in a sudden death Preliminary Final. It’s a game that promises plenty in terms of fascination and intrigue as a result of the rivalry that’s been building between the teams over recent encounters that have been tight struggles which have gone to the wire with two of them decided by after-the-siren goals. The added touch of mystery attached to this week’s meeting comes by virtue of the fact that it’s going to take

    THE VFL YEAR THAT NEVER WAS by KC from Casey

    The rising case numbers and the continuing lockdowns in Victoria and NSW spelled doom for the 2021 VFL season which went through a slow, painful demise before its recent official cancellation. After weeks of indecision, the AFL decided to pull the plug on the season with the 10-0 Bulldogs recognised as minor premier, but without a premiership cup and without awarding the J.J. Liston Medal for the best and fairest VFL player. It was somewhat fortuitous for the integrity of the competition t

    TAMING THE LIONS by George On The Outer

    With nine finals debutants in the side, the Melbourne Football Club had a daunting assignment ahead of it in the First Qualifying Final — to overcome the competition’s highest scoring side, the Brisbane Lions. In the end, the Demons accomplished the task by putting the bite on their opponents on their way to taming the Lions and recording a 33 point win that propelled them into one the two Preliminary Finals of 2021.   It was one of those debutants, Luke Jackson, who put the bite in more

    RETURN TO NEVERLAND by Whispering Jack

    The greatest Demon A HIGHWAY OF DEMONS by Whispering Jack CHAPTER SIXTEEN - RETURN TO NEVERLAND  I have a six year old grandson who recently took up the family tradition of following the Demons. He had his first taste of the game a few years ago when he went to the “G” with his parents to watch the 107-point massacre of Carlton and he went to another game in the following season which was also a W for the Dees. But his appetite for the club has grown exponentially this year and wh

    METAMORPHOSIS by Whispering Jack

    I’ve always believed that when the home and away matches come to an end, the football season takes on a completely different shape and character. During the regular season, each team’s goals progress as the weeks pass and if you’re good enough to survive and make the grade, the situation changes. The comparison can be made with the life cycle of a butterfly going through stages from egg to larva to caterpillar, cocoon and in the end to a bright and colourful creature that emerges from darkness i

    STEALING THE CATS’ CREAM by George On The Outer

    They were leading by 44 points well into the third quarter of a game to decide the minor premier, having kicked nine unanswered goals. The Cats were about to lap up their bowl of cream, dreaming of next week but the Demons led by Max Gawn had other ideas. In a stunning finish, they stole the game from under them to claim the plaudits as best team and top of ladder position. In a remarkable game, it all came down to Max having to kick the winning goal after the final siren, something which s

    SKIN THE CATS by Whispering Jack

    The task ahead for the Demons as they wend their way down the Princes Freeway to Geelong on Saturday night will be to skin the Cats. For them to come away with the points from this game would mark an historic occasion for the club as it will finish on top of the ladder for the first time since its last premiership year, 1964. And it was in that year, that a trip to Corio Bay to meet the reigning premiers in Round 12, was one of the catalysts for Melbourne’s surge to the flag. It was a top o

    REACH FOR THE STARS by George on the Outer

    It was a game of great significance for the Melbourne Football Club. A win would see them keep top spot on the ladder with one round remaining. To achieve top place in the Round for Reach when we are all inspired to “Be Like Jim” and reach for the stars was a great way of honouring one of our heroes. All the better given that it was done by way of an emphatic 41 point win against Adelaide! It is worth remembering that, but for the umpiring mistake in the previous encounter with the Crows, t

    TICKETS PLEASE by The Oracle

    A lot of water has passed under Princes Bridge in the five years since Melbourne last met Adelaide on the MCG. The Crows were riding high at the time while the Demons were mid-table and scrambling for a win to stay in the race for the finals. The 30,000 fans who had tickets to the game were thoroughly entertained by a close, high scoring affair that ended in tears for fans of the home team. Not even an eight-goal second term could help them.   Times have changed.    In the fi
