Club-by-club list of V/AFL players recruited straight from the GVL | Part two

By Aydin Payne

Welcome back to part two of The News' foray into VFL/AFL players recruited directly from the Goulburn Valley League.

With help from the GVL and its clubs, we kicked things off a fortnight ago by delving into the numbers surrounding the list of players that have been recruited.

Following on from last week's part one, where we highlighted the players from Benalla, Echuca and Euroa, this week we look at the products from Kyabram, Lemnos and Mansfield.

Club members across the region reached out searching for their organisation's individual stars — and The News is happy to accommodate the requests.

With 18 clubs to peruse — as well as the All Australian list — we are splitting it up in to more than one part.

The games and goals for current players are taken at the end of last season.
