FROM THE COACH
Perth Demons coach Earl Spalding ONCE again I am extremely fortunate to have the support of fantastic assistant coaches this year in Chance Bateman, Michael Pratt and the newly appointed Gary Moss, who had a successful career with East Perth and Hawthorn.
We will all play a part in assisting the players achieve on field success.
Clint Jones, in his second year at the club, has taken over the captaincy from newly-retired Dene White.
Clint brings a host of off-field leadership qualities to the group, as he displayed last season.
The captaincy is recognition of the professionalism Clint has bought with him to the club, along with the same traits as Liam McKenna, Cal Walley, Aidan Tropiano and Michael Sinclair, who are the 2017 leadership group.
A welcomed return to Lathlain Park is Brant Colledge after some time with West Coast Eagles and we will see a number of Colts players elevated to the senior group.
