Southport had no hesitation in reappointing champion midfielder Danny Wise as captain for the third year in the inaugural season of the NEAFL.
Wise has led his troops superbly since taking over the mantle from Darren O’Brien and was also made State captain last season, where he led from the front in the big win over Tasmania.
That Wise should win the Grogan Medal was testament to his ability to maintain his high standards, elevating his game further with the captaincy.
Another local junior, Glenn Screech, will support Wise as vice-captain.
Former Richmond rookie list player Dean Putt has made a big impression in just 12 months at Fankhauser Reserves, being handed the deputy vice-captaincy.
New senior coach Norm Dare announced his leadership team at the Sharks Jumper Presentation Evening last Friday, which was attended by 180 members and supporters.
