Carter won’t go on

GEELONG has earmarked its replacement for outgoing president Colin Carter, however, who replaces him will remain a closely guarded secret for now.

Carter will step down following ten years in the role after replacing the legendary Frank Costa after the 2010 season, despite the club negotiating its ways through the COVID-19 crisis.

His own desire to limit tenure on the Cats board to 12 years will see Carter become a victim of his own “soft” rule.

“There’s no hard and fast rule on that, but I think it’s right, and we’ve got a very good board,” Carter told K rock Football.

“We’ve got people who can take over from me.

“Extending the AGM out into January rather than (holding it in) December gives me another month, which I will relish.

“The time will then be to hand it over to someone else.”

Carter was tight-lipped when asked who the preferred replacement was.

“I’d prefer not to (say), but the board’s pretty clear on who that’s going to be,” he said.
