The AFL Players' Association is proud to unveil the 2017 22Under22 squad, which honours some of the game's most exciting young talent.

Harris Andrews, Eric Hipwood and Lewis Taylor are the in the 40-man squad selected by the AFLPA Board for their performances across the 2017 home and away season.

To be eligible for selection, players must be aged 22 years and under for the entirety of the season, including the finals series.

AFL Players' Association president Matthew Pavlich said finalising the squad of young stars was a difficult task given the standard of talent on display.

“There’s quality in every position and given the impact some of these players are already having on the competition, it’s hard to believe they are still in the infancy of their careers," he said.

“This concept gives us the opportunity to recognise the young players across the competition who are the next generation of stars. It’s also something the fans can genuinely impact, so make sure your vote counts.”

Now in its fifth year, 22Under22 is the industry’s only recognised fan-voted award and provides the footy public with the power to select the final 22.

Fans who submit a team that matches the final 22Under22 team will automatically go into the draw to win an AFL Players' prize pack.

Voting closes on Wednesday September 6, 2017.
