Victory defenders nominated for PFA Team of the Season


Melbourne Victory defenders Matthieu Delpierre and Jason Geria have been nominated for the 2015/16 Professional Footballers Australia A-League Team of the Season.

Dominated by Hyundai A-League Finals Series participants Melbourne Victory, Brisbane Roar and Western Sydney Wanderers, the eight nominees polled the highest number of votes by the PFA’s A-League members.

The nominated defenders are:

  • Matthieu Delpierre (Melbourne Victory)
  • Jason Geria (Melbourne Victory)
  • Josh Risdon (Perth Glory)
  • Scott Jamieson (Western Sydney Wanderers)
  • Nikolai Topor-Stanley (Western Sydney Wanderers)
  • Jade North (Brisbane Roar)
  • Dylan McGowan (Adelaide United)
  • Jack Hingert (Brisbane Roar)

Delpierre, 34, was outstanding in the centre of the defence for Victory in 2015/16, while right-back Geria, 22, was rewarded for his impressive form with a Caltex Socceroos call-up last month.

On Tuesday, Victory goalkeeper Danny Vukovic was also nominated for the PFA A-League Team of the Season.
