CASEY Scorpions defender James Wall’s bid for a recall to AFL ranks received a boost at the J.J. Liston Trophy count on Monday night when he was named in the VFL team of the year.
Wall, 21, spent a year on the Sydney Swans’ and St Kilda’s rookie lists in 2006 and 2007 respectively.
The Saints delisted him at the end of last year, but he chose to stay at the Scorpions and played a pivotal role in Casey conceding the second least number of points in the VFL this season.
Wall, who stands 198 centimetres, also made the VFL state team that lost to the SANFL by 65 points at Adelaide Oval in June.
Wall was the only Scorpion to make the team of the year, but the club did poll well in the J.J. Liston Trophy.
St Kilda-listed players Shane Birss (11 votes), Michael Rix (10) and midfielders Clinton Jones and David Armitage (both eight) led the way.
Wall (two), Alex Silvagni (two) and Ben Waite (one) were the only Casey-listed players to receive votes.
Werribee captain James Podsiadly, who tormented the Scorpions with eight goals on Sunday, claimed the J.J. Liston Trophy with 16 votes, ahead of Williamstown’s Brett Johnson and Sandringham’s Peter Summers on 15.
