Senior football coach Joe Carmody last night announced the on field leadership team for the 2020 season.
In his 5th season with the club, Sam James will lead the club as captain which was voted on by the players at their planning and training day in Ballarat last Saturday.
I’m absolutely stoked. We’re a young bunch but we’re really tight and we’ve got a lot of young boys coming through and we’ve got some mature one’s in there too but we’ve got good leaders around the club
Supporting Sam will be joint vice-captains Bailey Van De Heuval and Will Garner. Both these players have progressed from the junior ranks and according to Carmody, “the way they train, they the way speak with the group, and their performances on match day is testament to why they’ve been selected”.
The entire leadership group is as follows:
Captain: Sam James
Vice-Captains: Bailey Van De Heuval & Will Garner
Leadership Group: Daniel Kennedy, Nick O’Farrell, Nick Weightman, Mitch Martin.
Round 1 for the senior football & netball is on Saturday April 18 against traditional rival Redan at the City Oval.
