Former skipper Brad Green returns to the Demons

Melbourne’s former captain Brad Green has returned to the club after winning a position on its board, following an election in which a challenger who backs the Demons financially failed in his bid.

In a victory for the board led by president Glen Bartlett as the club enters a critical season, four directors endorsed by the incumbent board won selection, while challenger Peter Lawrence – a wealthy club backer who wanted to shake up the board – failed to win a board position.

Green, a former Melbourne captain and fan favourite, was elected by the members along with David Remnick, a lawyer with property interests. Current board members Steve Morris and Mohan Jesudason – experienced figures in the capital raising and racing and telecommunications industries respectively – were re-elected.

Lawrence was among the most generous of Melbourne’s Foundation Heroes, having donated between $100,000 and $149,000 to the Demons when they were seeking to wipe out debt, a program instigated by their late president and former club great Jim Stynes.
