?Trigger? lost to Sandringham

Having appointed a new coach in Mark Williams, Sandringham must now settle on a new captain.


Heath ?Trigger? Tregear, the skipper for the past two seasons, is making the same move as the man he replaced, David MacGeorge, taking up a work opportunity in Sydney.


Tregear, 26, played 125 games for the Zebras after making his senior entrance in round one of 1997.


The Hampton Rovers old boy finished runner up in the 1998 best and fairest and played in the 2000 premiership.


My employer has just started an office in Sydney and business is growing and I was asked to go up there, Tregear, a retail property consultant, said last Friday.


I weighed it up and thought I?d give it a try.  It was a tough decision given that I?ll have to stop playing in the VFL.  I think I?ve got a lot of good footy in front of me.  But as you get that bit older your priorities change.?


Tregear said he left with a heavy heard.  I?ll miss the club, definitely.  It’s been such a big part of my life.


?A lot of my mates are there, a lot of memories.  It’s been a privilege to play at such a good club and an absolute honour to captain the club. 


But I?ll move on and I?m sure the club will move on, too.?


Zebras general manager John Mennie said Tregear had been a fine player and leader and the club was disappointed to lose him.


Tregear will take on his new role in early December.
