2015 Toyota AFL Grand Final - Hawthorn v West Coast

Luke Shuey has been added to West Coast's leadership group

MIDFIELDER Luke Shuey has been added to West Coast's leadership group, while Shannon Hurn retains the captaincy after an excellent first season in charge.

Shuey, 25, is the only new inclusion to the five-man leadership group, replacing former teammate Scott Selwood, who moved to Geelong as a restricted free agent during the off-season.

Selwood had been a vice-captain alongside Josh Kennedy for the past two seasons.

The two were elected as vice-captains under Darren Glass in 2014, remaining in the role in 2015 when Hurn took over the leadership.

Kennedy will be the sole vice-captain in 2016.

Shuey is the youngest player in the leadership group, joining Brownlow medallist Matt Priddis and 2014 best and fairest Eric Mackenzie.

Coach Adam Simpson said Shuey's elevation was reward for his hard work.

"The elevation of Luke is indicative of his growth in the last couple of years and we are excited by what he brings to the group," Simpson said.

Simpson said it was vital to have stability within the leadership group from season to season.
