Last week Igor Hadziomerovic was voted by his peers as captain for the upcoming NBL1 South 2021 Season.
He will be joined in the leadership group by Lachlan Barker and Lucas Barker, who will share vice-captain roles.
FDBA CEO Wayne Holdsworth praised the hard work and leadership in the Men’s program from the past few years.
“Although Tim (Bower), the Board and myself present and lead from an Association level, the window of leadership is thru our NBL1”
“A lot of people come to games and it’s live-streamed. Our leadership on-court, at that level, is absolutely critical”
“I’m really proud to say, whilst I’ve been here (at the FDBA) the leadership that Andrew, Iggy, Lachie, and now Lucas, have shown has lead the Association, and also lead the league in many ways.”
“I think how lucky we are to have these people, in these positions.”
Head Coach Andrew Harms spoke about the selection of captains.
“We vote every year, be we think it really important to keep that kind of pulse on the way the guys are feeling and we think leadership is something that is demonstrated consistently, not something that is rested upon.”
“We have had a slight change since last year, with a few personnel changes, and new guys slotting in.”
“We have Iggy as captain, but also Lachlan and Lucas in a joint vice-captain role”
Igor Hadziomerovic spoke about his captaincy and the responsibility.
“I am very excited and honored to be selected by my teammates in the captaincy position.”
“It is a role that I truly cherish and to be part of the leadership team here at Frankston is something not taken for granted.”
“I’m looking forward to working with Wayne, Harmsy, Lachy and Lucas to help lead this club not only on the court but in the wider Frankston community!”
