2017 Leadership Group Announced
The Gippsland Power TAC Cup squad has selected their leadership group for 2017 with five players voted into the roles by their peers.
After being in the leadership group as a bottom aged player last year, Aidan Quigley will step up to the captains role this season.
An athletic midfielder from Yinnar, Quigley has displayed a solid work ethic over the preseason and will draw on his experience gained from the AFL Academy to lead his team.
Supporting Quigley will be dual vice captains Will Stephenson (Sale) and Callum Porter (Officer).
Stephenson is coming off an exceptional first year in the TAC Cup where he was named Power’s best first year player. Porter also made a big impact in 2016, winning the most disciplined player award for Power and setting the standards in preparation and training for his team mates to follow.
Rounding out the leadership group is returning 19 year old Will Leslie (Sale) and Austin Hodge (Buchan).
The TAC Cup season kicks off this weekend with Power taking on long term rivals Dandenong Stingrays at home in Morwell on Saturday 25th March.
In a big day of football for the club, the Power Under 16 boys and TAC Cup Girls will also be playing games against the Stingrays on Saturday.

TAC Cup Boys: Gippsland v Dandenong, 25th March - 1pm, Morwell Football Ground
