Anton Sullivan has been handed the Offaly football captaincy for the coming year.
The talented forward, who missed a large chunk of the 2017 campaign because of overseas duty with the Defence Forces, takes over the role from Sean Pender.
Sullivan and the recently-retired Niall McNamee were joint-captains of the Rhode team that retained the Offaly SFC title in October. Meanwhile, another Rhode stalwart and recent inter-county retiree, Brian Darby, has been named 2017 Offaly Footballer of the Year.
