Rising Glenelg star Andrew Bradley will join veteran Ty Allen as co-captain of the Bays in season 2014.

Last year’s Best-and-Fairest with the Tigers, Bradley is being groomed as the club’s long-term leader given his exceptional consistency and ability to communicate with his team-mates.

Allen, who has been restricted during summer due to knee surgery, will effectively act as a torch-bearer to Bradley while he makes his way back to full fitness.

‘’Ty has had a restricted pre-season so we thought to be able to have someone in Andrew, who Ty can work with this year, would be the way to go,’’ Glenelg football manager Matt Lokan said.

‘’Ty might not be ready to play senior footy until round five or six so he can help mould Andrew into the role. It is no secret that Ty is nearing the end of his career so we think we need to have someone ready to go for that when he does decide to retire.

‘’We thought Braddles was suited for that role, he is the Best-and-Fairest winner from last year and pretty respected within our group so we thought it was a good fit to have both of them.’’

Carlton recruit Aaron Joseph and emerging defender Craig Pitt will act as joint vice-captains while key forward Ruory Kirkby, ruckman Lachlan Button and goalsneak Andrew Hooper round out the Tigers’ leadership group.
