VFL Team: Vince to return for Casey

BERNIE Vince will make his return from a shoulder injury in Casey’s VFL Preliminary Final with Essendon on Saturday.

Vince is one of six additions into the extended squad, with Mitch King, Jaxon Briggs, Jay Kennedy Harris, Angus Scott and Aidan Quigley also included.

Pat McKenna is the one out from the squad, which will be cut down to 22 players prior to the first bounce on Saturday.

Vince, who will retire at the end of the season, will play his first game in just over a month after injuring his shoulder in a VFL match against Sandringham.

The winner of this match will progress to the VFL Grand Final at Etihad Stadium next weekend.

The Preliminary Final will be televised on Channel 7 from 2pm on Saturday in Victoria.
