Joel Cross and Keegan Brooksby to Co-Captain Panthers in 2018

Joel Cross and Keegan Brooksby have been appointed co-captains to lead the South Adelaide Football Club in 2018

Cross and Brooksby will take the reigns from incumbent skipper Brad Crabb, who has stepped aside after three years at the helm to allow more time to focus on his football and young family.

Both men, who boast four Knuckey Cups between them, said they were honoured by the chance to lead the Panthers in 2018.

"It is a great honour to be named as co-captain of this club that has been a big part of my life for the past seven years," said dual Magarey Medallist Cross.

"It is not something I like to look at as a personal achievement, but as a way for me to serve the club to the best of my abilities.

"I am just one person of many working together to achieve our goal of ultimate success. As co-captain, I will be working as best I can to do this."

"It is a big honour to be voted co-captain with Joel and it is pretty special to be sharing it with one of my good friends," said Brooksby, who returns to Noarlunga this season after three years with Gold Coast in the AFL.

"I am really looking forward to the challenge, and hopefully we'll be able to deliver a bit of silver wear to Noarlunga for the first time in 54 years."

Cross and Brooksby were identified as two players that lead from the front and strive to bring out the best in their teammates.

Assisting them will be Matt Rose, who will continue in his role as vice captain and rounding out the leadership group is second-year Panther Abe Davis, rising midfielder Ben Heaslip and key forward Sam Overall.

Former Sydney Swans rookie Davis is a player that leads by example, while Heaslip, a product of the Panthers junior talent pathway, and Overall, another who shows great leadership skills with the way he plays, have been identified as emerging leaders within the playing group.
