2014 Leadership Group

12 March 2014

At training Tuesday night Senior Coach Anthony Rock announced the 2014 Leadership Group.

The selection process was very thorough, taking into account : leadership qualities and experience, a full player vote, extensive discussion and deliberation by the full coaching panel, before the group was finally submitted to and ratified by the club committee.

The club is very pleased to announce a strong and balanced 2014 Leadership Group, made up of players well known in the club community.

Captain : Tom Caven . Two time club best and fairest winner, VAFA representative player, multiple VAFA team of the year representative, Full Back St Bernard’s Team of the Half Century. 

Vice Captain : Adam Bentick. Former 70 game Carlton AFL player and Rising Star Nominee. VFL Premiership Player with Port Melb. Multiple VAFA representative player, including VAFA vice captain on 2013 Irish Tour.

They will be strongly supported by the four other members of the Leadership Group, who all exhibit high quality on and off field leadership skills.

Tom Overman, Nick Cooke, Jacob Bevanda and Michael Angel.

The Leadership Group and whole playing list get down to business this Saturday, with the first practice match vs Uni Blacks at Daylesford.

We congratulate all six players on their appointments, and we wish them all the very best as they lead the playing group into an exciting and challenging 2014 season.
