Being an inaugural member for the Powerchair Team since its inception in 2015, David has consistently been a high-performer, with significant state and national experience, David feels his maturity and leadership qualities continue to grow.
The competition will begin on the 14th of January with two groups of six teams battling through the group stages. The finals will take place on the 19th, all matches will be held at Hall of Legends, Quay Centre, Sydney Olympic Park.
While David will wear the armband, the midfielder is excited to see his three team mates lead the club to its highest finish. “I’m looking forward to the challenge, we have two new debutantes in the team which is vastly different to our squad last year but we have put in a lot of hard work to prepare us for the competition. We’ll go out there and do our very best and hopefully that is good enough to get us our highest finish” said David.
The team will feature two new debutantes in Kieran Watts (NSW) and Gavin Thorneycroft. Kieran will join the team on a short-term loan and has been selected as Vice-Captain.
