New-look leadership group for the Gold Coast SUNS AFLW

The Gold Coast SUNS has today announced a new look leadership group, headlined by the appointment of Hannah Dunn as co caption with Sam Virgo.

Quickly establishing herself as one of the SUNS most important midfield players, Dunn has grown in her debut season to be a respected leader at the club.

Dunn said the opportunity to represent the Gold Coast and lead the group through its second premiership campaign was humbling. 

“It’s an absolute honour to be appointed captain alongside Sam and I couldn’t be prouder to represent the club, its supporters and the entire Gold Coast community,” Dunn told

Sam Virgo will continue her role as captain in 2021, after leading the group through its inaugural campaign.

“Our inaugural leadership group laid some great foundations for the future of this club. I’m looking forward to working with our 2021 leaders to continue that journey towards becoming the best version of ourselves,” Virgo said.

Joining the pair in the five-member leadership group is inaugural Club Champion Jamie Stanton, new recruit Sarah Perkins and Jade Pregelj.

Gold Coast SUNS Head of Women’s Football, Fiona McLarty said the group would play an important role in shaping the women’s football program at the club.

“We want our entire playing group to be great role models and inspire the next generation of female athletes, and our leadership group will be the ones to lead the way both on and off the field,” McLarty said. 

The SUNS AFLW will now prepare to play West Coast in Round 1 of the 2021 NAB AFLW Premiership Season on Saturday 30th January.
