WESTERN Bulldogs great Luke Darcy is the newest member of the club's board.

Darcy fills the remaining spot and replaces former teammate Matthew Croft, who retired as football director late last year.

The 44-year-old former ruckman, who captained the Bulldogs, won the 2001 Charles Sutton Medal and played 226 matches, will be responsible for overseeing governance of the club's football programs.

"I'm extremely honoured and humbled to officially join the Western Bulldogs' board of directors," Darcy said. 

"This is a great opportunity for me to give back to a club which has provided so much to me over the years, and to contribute wherever I can in what are extremely difficult times for everyone."

Bulldogs president Peter Gordon was pleased to welcome Darcy into the role, particularly with his "experience and insight" for the challenges ahead in football operations.

Darcy is now a prominent media performer, appearing on Channel Seven's football coverage and being part of Triple M's breakfast program and commentary team.

The Dogs have made several board appointments in the past 12 months, including Lisa Fitzpatrick, Belinda Duarte and Simon Garlick, who has since accepted the role as Fremantle's chief executive.
