GREATER Western Sydney will get another extended look at highly-rated Academy hopeful Josh Fahey at this year's NAB AFL Under-19 Championships, with the in-form defender named in a talented 39-man Allies squad on Wednesday.

Fahey, who emerged as one of the brightest Academy prospects in the country when he claimed the MCC President's Medal for his performance with the NAB AFL Academy side earlier this year, headlines the inclusions for the Allies ahead of next month's carnival.

Josh Green, the brother of second-year GWS midfielder Tom, is another of the six Giants Academy members selected in the squad having been overlooked at last year's NAB AFL Draft.

Murray Bushrangers forward Cam McLeod, another overage prospect who attracted a host of interest ahead of the recent NAB AFL Mid-Season Rookie Draft, is also given his chance to impress on a national stage.

Gold Coast has a host of Academy members included, led by Darwin key forward Ned Stevens and speedy defender Austin Harris, while the Academy programs of Sydney and Brisbane are also represented within the squad.

Jack Peris, the son of Australian Olympic gold medallist Nova Peris and a member of St Kilda's Next Generation Academy, is another intriguing youngster named in an Allies squad coached by Andrew Raines.

The Allies kick off their championships campaign off with a clash against Vic Metro at Metricon Stadium (July 8), before facing South Australia at the Adelaide Oval (July 24), Western Australia in Blacktown (July 31) and Vic Country at GMHBA Stadium (August 14).
