Star forward Toby Greene has been elevated to vice-captain of the GIANTS ahead of his 10th season in the competition.

As the club celebrates a big big decade, two foundation players will lead the club with Stephen Coniglio as captain and Greene as his deputy.

Inaugural co-captain Phil Davis has stepped back into the leadership group while midfield star Jacob Hopper will join the group for the first time.

Lachie Whitfield, Josh Kelly and Matt de Boer will continue in their leadership roles.

Greene said he was excited to take on more responsibility in 2021.

“It’s an honour to be vice-captain of a club that I love so much and that has given me so much in my life,” Greene said.

“Leadership is something I’ve worked really hard on developing and it’s an area I want to continue to improve in.

“I’m really proud to support ‘Cogs’ as our captain and we’ve got a really strong group that will drive us forward in 2021.”

GIANTS General Manager of Football Jason McCartney said the club is pleased with the experience and diversity of the group.

“We’re really excited where our leaders can take our playing group this season,” he said.

“Toby has led our club in the past and is a natural fit to become vice-captain.

“We welcome Phil back to an official leadership position although he’s never stopped being a strong leader of our club.

“Jacob is quite simply an outstanding player and young leader, he thrives on responsibility and is very much looking forward to this enhanced leadership role.

“Our leaders, players and staff are firmly focused on driving our club forward and we can’t wait for the 2021 season to begin.”
