David Gallop, CEO of Football Federation Australia, and Melbourne Victory CEO Ian Robson, a Tasmanian, were in Hobart today to launch the second season of the Victory League State-wide competition.

Speaking at the launch, Gallop said the Victory League had demonstrated the power of the National Premier Leagues competition.

Devonport City have suffered three significant losses on the eve of the 2014 Victory League season.

Gone are Brayden Mann, Joel Stone and Adam Gorrie.

Goalkeeper Ryan Norval has left Olympia Warriors only days after being named in the club’s Victory League squad for 2014.

Norval, who is from Sydney, has been signed by Victorian Premier League club Heidelberg United.

Olympia Warriors have shown their cup credentials last season and this, but can they transfer this to the Victory League?

The Warriors have named their 20-man Victory League squad and it includes significant exclusions as well as notable inclusions.
