SUNS TV: Tom Lynch GC SUNS forward Tom Lynch speaks to SUNS TV after being announced as a vice captain for 2016
We want to have sustained success and build a great culture

After a stellar 2015 season that saw him take out the Club Champion award, Tom Lynch has been named one of three vice-captains for 2016.

Alongside co-vice-captains Dion Prestia and Steven May, Lynch will build upon the relentless leadership qualities he displayed in 2015 to elevate the Club in the new season.

“At the end of it all we want to have sustained success here and really set the club up for a really good future,” the 23-year-old told SUNS TV.

“We have a really good group of leaders I think and we are really setting the standards right so hopefully it’ll improve on field performance.”

During an undoubtedly challenging year for the club as a whole Lynch’s individual performance was outstanding.

His growth on and off the field came at a pivotal time in his career and the young forward is now integrating the lesson of ‘controlling what you can control’ into his overall approach.

“We learnt a lot individually I’d say, sort of just got to keep fronting up and things might not go your way but you’ve got to turn up each week and really drive those standards and hit the training track,” he said.

The young forward said he was excited to once again be part of the leadership group and to be given the opportunity to help shape the future of the Club.

“When you look back at the end of my career hopefully Gold Coast can be looked upon the same as Hawthorn , Geelong and Sydney and how well they’ve been and what a great culture they have built,” he said.

“We want to have sustained success and build a great culture.”
