2015 CLUB LEADERS (L to R): Dean Flynn, Cal Lester, Luke Broomhall, Heath Burridge, Brent Nanopoulos, Aaron Pacey, Aaron Harper, Elliot Williams, Josh Scrivano, Nick Webb, Scott Thorne and Paul Follett.

Members of the club descended on the Sands Hotel on Saturday night for the informal Season Launch.

The turn out was fantastic. There were many new faces mixing in with the existing members over a bistro meal and drinks. It was a relaxed atmosphere and everyone seemed to really enjoy themselves.

Once everyone was fed, the coaches took the floor and announced their captains and leadership groups for the 2015 season.

Newly appointed under 19s coach, Adam Lagerewskij, spoke first and stated his excitement about taking on the role and how much he was looking forward to working with the clubs young talent. Lagerewskij then appointed Josh Scrivano as captain, with Luke Broomhall as his second-in-charge. Both Josh and Luke have made their mark as young leaders over the preseason and everyone at Skye looks forward to seeing them develop these skills as the year progresses.

THIRDS LEADERSHIP (L to R): Heath Burridge (Co-Captain), Elliot Williams (Co-Captain), Dean Flynn (Vice-Captain) and Paul Follett (Vice-Captain).

Thirds coach, Chris Rodrigues, then announced his leadership team for the season. Experienced ruck/forward Heath Burridge and the ever-passionate Elliot Williams were announced as co-captains. Paul Follett and Dean Flynn will support them.

RESERVES LEADERS (L to R): Cal Lester (Leadership), Nick Webb (Vice-Captain), Brent Nanopoulos (Captain), Scott Thorne (Leadership).

Chris Smith was proud to announce his good friend and passionate clubman, Brent Nanopoulos, as captain of the reserves team. Ruckman Nick Webb was announced as vice-captain with Scott Thorne and Cal Lester as leadership support.

The floor then went to second-year senior coach, Ben Walker to present his leadership team for 2015. There were no suprised faces when Aaron Pacey was handed the captaincy for the sixth straight year. Pacey's leadership skills have developed rapidly since first being appointed in 2010. He lead the seniors to a grand final berth in 2014 and will be working hard to get his team there and go one better in 2015. Veteran Marty Watts and hard-working tagger Aaron Harper will be the senior vice-captains.

SENIOR LEADERS (L to R): Aaron Pacey (Captain), Aaron Harper (Vice-Captain). ABSENT: Marty Watts (Vice-Captain).

The club is very proud of it's leaders and look forward to seeing what they can achieve this season. Congratulations to everyone included in this group for 2015.

Captain's Day Out

Could the skip have done any better......?

Aaron Pacey was front and centre with the club captains at the 2015 AFL Season Launch held this morning at Etihad Stadium.

The league was impressed with Aaron Pacey's endeavour.

Our senior captain of the last five years made the trip to Etihad stadium as our club representative to be involved in a nation-wide launch campaign were every football club from around the country were invited to be involved and mix it with the AFL leaders. Aaron was also fortunate enough to snare a selfie with his idol, Richmond captain, Trent Cotchin.

Forever hardworking, Aaron has put the disappointment of the 2014 grand final loss behind him to put in what might perhaps be his best preseason and is a strong chance to retain the captaincy in 2015 when it is announced this Saturday at the Sands Hotel.
