Pidge Heritage

The good news continues at KGV with Brayden Webb, the club’s second-longest serving captain in 100 years of football, signing on to remain a Magpie for the next two seasons.

Webb’s list of achievements is legendary – premiership captain, Roy Cazaly Medallist for club best and fairest, Lefroy Medallist for best on ground for Tasmania, four-time TSL Team of the Year member – including three times as captain – and six seasons as skipper of Glenorchy. 

For Webb, the signing was a no-brainer, he wants more success as a Magpie and wants to let his game do the talking.

“I don’t want a big article like Josh (Arnold) had, he copped so much crap from the boys about that,” Webb laughed.

“I just want to keep playing for the club, we’re in a good position and I think I can still help. 

“It’s been frustrating getting my ankles right only to have something else to pop up, but all I can do is get that right and then hopefully I’ve got some better luck in front of me.”

In more good news for Magpies fans, Webb has been cleared to soon resume running after his knee reconstruction, giving him every chance of returning to the field in the earlier stages of 2020.

Coach Paul Kennedy was delighted to have ‘Pidge’ back on board for the next two years.

“To have Brayden and Josh back is hugely-important for our club. They provide an incredible level of leadership and passion, which is so important in maintaining a winning culture as we bring through the next generation of players,” Kennedy said.

“The thing I most love about Pidge is the way he goes about his business. He’s had a rotten run of luck with injuries but I’ve never heard him complain about it, he just gets on with his rehab and gets on with helping the younger midfielders learn the game.

“When he’s up and going he’s still one of the best midfielders in the comp and one of the smartest players in the comp, so I can’t wait to see him back on the field.”
