Glenelg captain Andrew Bradley will extend his tenure into a fourth year after being reappointed skipper for season 2017.
The fearless midfielder has again been elected to wear the Bays’ famous No.5 guernsey in honour of dual premiership captain Peter ”Super” Carey.
Speaking on SANFL Radio, the 25-year-old revealed he is easing back into full contact training after suffering a serious broken collarbone last season.
Bradley – who has now logged 102 League matches for the Bays since 2010 – missed 12 weeks of action after undergoing surgery.
After coming through unscathed in an internal trial match last weekend, he has been named to play in the Reserves against Central District on Saturday.
Glenelg’s captain since sharing the duties with Ty Allen in 2014, Bradley will be backed by experienced defender James Sellar, who will be the club’s vice-captain.
AFL experienced pair Aaron Joseph and Christian Howard will again be a part of the leadership group while loyal midfielder Lachlan Earl has been included for the second time.
