Taylor Walker has been unveiled as the new captain of the Adelaide Crows.
Walker becomes the club’s seventh captain, replacing Nathan van Berlo.
“I am honoured to be given this opportunity and like everyone at our club, want to build on the hard working culture and approach,” Walker said in a statement.
Adelaide coach Phil Walsh believed the 24-year-old was the ideal choice to take on the role as skipper.
“Taylor is a quality young man and footballer,” he said.
“I have said before that he thinks not what is best for himself, but what is best for the team.
“When he speaks or acts, others listen and follow suit, which is a special quality.”
Van Berlo will remain on the Crows’ leadership group, having captained the club for the past four seasons.
Walker has played 84 games for the Crows since making his debut in 2009.
Should Walker have been selected as captain? What does this mean for Patrick Dangerfield? Is he heading back to Victoria?
