On the eve of the Magpies’ first game, the team gathered at The Australian BarÂ and Restaurant where Andy Brennan was named captain for the 2010 season. Magpies coach Glenn Ormsby said Andy was the perfect choice for captain as he is a great player with a tremendous work ethic and leads by example both on and off the field. During his acceptance speech, Andy challenged the players to get better both individually and as a team.
Magpie debutants were also presented with their jumpers for the season. These players were Dave Wittmer, Eddy Buckingham, Aaron Puvi, Chris Georgiou, Sani Hadziahmetovic, Myles Walkington, Brad Davis, Greg Smith, James McLoughlin, and Matt Hocking.
