2017 De La Salle Leadership Group
Plenty of changes in the wind for the Blue & Gold this year with the announcement of the club’s leaders.
Sam Williams (co-captain in 2016) will continue as Skipper and will be joined by our reigning Best & Fairest, Tom Humphrey.
Sam & Tom will compliment each other extremely well and also receive support from newly appointed Vice Captains, Sam Pickett & Sam Haslem.
Brendan Close, Jake Williams, Liam Wood, and Josh Scipione are new additions to the group, while Jake Gotch & Matt Fieldsend remain and round out the 10-man leadership group.
Humphrey replaces Matthew Fieldsend in the co-captaincy position, who has proven to be a champion on & off the field in the role he held for the past 3 years, and will continue to be an outstanding mentor for all of our leaders.
The club has a wealth of experience with former skippers Fieldsend, Jake Gotch & David Lowe (returning from a year overseas) all involved in a playing capacity.
Senior Coach Paul Satterley said the news was extremely well received by the entire playing group. “The club is incredibly well placed given the quality of the people we have not only in the leadership group, but broader playing group as a whole. We are looking forward to getting stuck into our practice matches,”.
