PACE and class are the order of the day for Murray United, as the look to redeem themselves after two disappointing outings in as many weeks.
A fresh face will be a part of that, with 18-year-old Myrtleford young gun Azia Feltrin set to make us debut in red.
Feltrin will reap the benefits of the under-20s team’s consistently good performances this season, with coach Elliot Jones enamoured with the young gun’s pace.
“It's really exciting, Azia getting his first start for us,” he said.
“He’s the sort of guy who, if he's on song, can win you games.
“We'll look to back him in and just let him do his thing.”
The speedy forward boasts a cerebral playstyle, which should mesh well with veteran Archie Thompson.
“He's really fast and has plenty of tricks, lately in the under-20s he's been delivering and crossing the ball well,” Jones said.
“We think his out and out pace could really trouble a few sides.”

Feltrin will take to the field with another exciting young talent from the Myrtleford area in Fletcher Caponecchia, who has held down a place in the midfield for most of the 2018 season.
The former Socceroo and A-League champion Thompson will be right to go on home turn this weekend, after turning in 45 minutes last weekend.
Jones said Thompson would play a similar number of minutes, or possibly more depending on how his body felt during the course of the game.
Fortunately for Murray United, it seems Thompson's troublesome knee has been improving.
Pending the outcomes of a few other minor injury niggles, the only change to last week's side will likely be the inclusion of Feltrin.
Daniel Vasilevski will again miss due to injury.
Jones said staying organised on the field would be crucial against Langwarrin SC, noting their ability to counter-attack as one of their greatest strengths.
“It's about being organised and planning for the worst, even when we're going forward,” he said.
“I'd like to think we won't be caught on the counter-attack, we know they can be quite direct.
“They’ve got some pace up top.”
Above all else, Jones was hoping to see his players stick to their strengths.
“I'd really like to see us just play with a bit of freedom and flair,” he said.
“Last weekend, the first 45 minutes, in terms of being on the ball, was as good as we've looked – it certainly helps when Archie is in the side, and it frees up other guys to go for it too.”
