Werribee defender Keegan Gray will make his VFL debut when he lines up against Geelong at GMHBA Stadium on Saturday.
The 18-year-old Portland and GWV Rebels product has been named as 23rd player for the clash with the Cats in place of Cassidy Parish, who returns to the Victorian Country side for the third and final game of the Young Guns Series.
Gray is the 13th player to make his debut for Werribee this season and has earned his call-up comes on the back of strong local form playing at half back for Geelong Football League side Bell Park and his two performances alongside Parish in the opening two Young Guns matches.
Injured key forward Josh Corbett is the other confirmed omission, with Kye Declase and Ethan Petterwood a chance to earn recalls after holding their place in the 27-man squad and key-position players Julian Lockwood, Jade Cleeland, and Harry Boyd all added to the extended bench as possible inclusions.
The match kicks off at 11am.
