The club is proud to announce a Leadership Group of six players for Season 2018, including the appointment of our first stand alone Captain in five years, and a dual Vice Captaincy appointment.
All players voted for their leaders at the recent training camp at Sorrento, and they include:
- Our 2017 Best 1st Year player Liam Murphy,
- Dual Woodrow medallist Jake Williams,
- Club stalwart & former captain Matt Fieldsend
- Reigning B&F winner Jason Tutt
- Our 2017 co-Captains Tom Humphrey & Sam Williams
Jason Tutt & Sam Williams were announced as joint Vice Captains whilst our reigning VAFA Team of the Year Captain Tom Humphrey will become the first stand-alone skipper since David Lowe in 2013.
Coach Paul Satterley was impressed by the player-endorsed appointments.
“This is a massive vote of confidence for Tom and underlines his standing amongst the group. He is a competitive animal on the field and loved off the field. I think he now has the right balance of maturity to lead the players, and he now also has the opportunity to put his own stamp on the place. The timing is perfect for him.
When you consider that the likes of David Lowe, Jake Gotch & Sam Haslem have chosen to play a supporting role this year, our depth of leadership is immense, and there is enormous support for our newly chosen group”.
