SURFSIDE Waves Soccer Club’s Men’s Division One side announced the captain and vice-captain for the 2016 season.
Playing-coach Luis McClelland will again be at the helm for his fourth consecutive season, and is hoping to build on the success of a runner-up finish and grand final berth that the Waves experienced in 2015. Adrian Bond will again captain the squad in his second season with the side. Jack Pedler will deputise as vice-captain, rounding out the leadership group which possesses a nice amount of skill and experience.
“We are very lucky to have both Bondy and Peds not only playing at the club but filling leadership roles, they are two absolute quality players and people,” McClelland said.
“This season, our squad shouldn’t change too much, but we are hoping to get one or two new faces in to strengthen the group.”
The Waves have been fortunate enough to be representing the Sunday League in the Morris Finance Cup, which has them testing their skills against the some of the best players that the Geelong region has to offer.
“It has been a wonderful experience so far, and a great challenge for our players,” Bond said.
“We have learnt a lot so far and as a group, we feel we have been able to play some pleasing patches of football against quality opposition.”
