Jay DeMerit and Josh Sargent suiting up for the League Two Central Conference All-Time XI, and DeAndre Yedlin and Aaron Long for the Western Conference, which team do you think would win?
Led by a plethora of legendary current and former players on each side, the Central Conference and Western Conference advanced through to match up in the Final of the All-Time League Two Conference XIs Bracket.
For the Central Conference, there was a narrow victory against the Eastern Conference with 57 percent of the ballot sending the likes of goalkeeper Brad Guzan, defender Jay DeMerit and forward Josh Sargent to victory.
For the Western Conference – which is looking to replicate the success of the Ventura County Fusion as the League Two club that had the best All-Time XI in the league’s history this week – players like midfielder Sacha Kljesta, forward Kei Kamara and defender Aaron Long feature.
It is a matchup of stacked lineups, with national team players featuring throughout. So, who’ve you go taking the crown?

The qualify on both sides would make this matchup a must-see with the players in their primes. For the Western attack, Kei Kamara, Jordan Morriss and Gyasi Zardes would have to try and break down a defense led by Tim Ream and Jay DeMerit and backed by goalkeeper Brad Guzan – the 2004 League Two Goalkeeper of the Year.
In the midfield, the controlled excellence of the Central Conference’s Darlington and Ethan Finlay would be tested by the all-around game of Cristian Roldan, while the West’s Sacha Kljestan could make life very difficult for the Central’s Jay Chapman.
There would be a big challenge for the Western Conference’s defense too, however, as it looked to contain current U.S. Men’s international Josh Sargent, who would likely go head-to-head with national teammate Aaron Long in the middle. A matchup out wide between the Central’s Teal Bunbury and the West’s DeAndre Yedlin – both League Two honorees before they joined the pro ranks – could also offer plenty to think about, too.
