AARON Black will again captain Geelong’s VFL team in 2020.

Black, who played AFL with the Cats and North Melbourne, will head-up a four-man leadership group that also features Dan Capiron, Cal Mitchell and former Hawthorn player Teia Miles.

“Aaron was outstanding in the role last year and it was a unanimous decision amongst players and coaches for him to be re-appointed as captain again this year,” coach Shane O’Bree said.

Geelong meets Essendon in its first of four VFL practice matches on Monday.

The Cats open the 2020 season with a twilight clash against Coburg at GMHBA Stadium on April 4.
