The Bulldogs won’t have a senior captain or vice-captain this season, withPat Rowe, Michael Cummings, Seb Walsh, Rob Rodgers and Pat Helper all assuming key leadership roles.

New Daylesford coach Marcus Goonan expectsthe group to take on mentoring, player confidant, on-field coaching and role model positions.

“This is testament to the depth of leadership amongst the 2016 playing group,” Goonan said.

“We’ve got returning players, club stalwarts and leadership up-and-comers all appointed, which is exciting for us as a coaching groupand I think should be a good sign for Daylesford supporters.”

Meanwhile, the Bulldogs have been forced to shift Saturday’sround one clash against Beaufort.

All football and netball fixtureswereoriginally scheduled for Daylesford, but due to the ongoing works at the newVictoria Park clubrooms, they will allbe played at Beaufort.

This means Daylesford will host its first home game of the season against arch-rivals Hepburn in round three on April 23.

The fixture is set to be the official opening of the new facility.
