The Dyldam Parramatta Eels have this week named their train-on squads for 2016 for SG Ball and Harold Matthews, as well as their senior and junior talent squads.
Thank you so much to all the talented young players who participated in the 2016 trials, and congratulations to all the players named!
2016 is also a ground-breaking year for the Blue and Gold, with two young footballers from the Northern Territory, William Nugraha and Rodney Baird, working with the senior Parramatta Talent Squad.
Nugraha and Baird will both remain based with their families in the Territory, but receive regular training, support and advice from the Eels' coaching and recruitment staff, to add to their development as footballers.
The pair will also spend some time in Sydney during the year, training and playing alongside their peers in the talent squad.
