FROM THE COACH

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - 2017 PERTH DEMONS -

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.
