After two games of VFL football while playing for the Calder Cannons in 2017, Jean-Luc Velissaris made the most of his debut year at the Northern Blues. The crafty forward was quick to get used to the surrounds of VFL football, improving by the week to play a dozen games in his first season. With seven goals in his final five games, Velissaris showed his potential as a goalsneak and someone who could prove to be a consistent VFL performer in the future for Northern.
