GREATER Western Sydney $6 million man Tom Scully has been promoted to vice-captain but missed out on the co-captaincy spot vacated by Luke Power.

Scully, 21, joined the Giants from Melbourne on a huge contract and has been rated a future captain.

But those ambitions will have to wait at least another season after the Giants opted for just two captains in 2013.

The AFL's newest club was led by 21-year-olds Callan Ward and Phil Davis, along with veteran Luke Power, in its first season.

After Power's retirement the club has decided not to replace him with a new captain.

Ward won the Giants' best-and-fairest while Davis was the only GWS player to play all 22 matches last season.

The leadership group was selected by players and coaches who were asked to nominate those players they believe best demonstrate leadership qualities.

Scully said he was honoured to be nominated.

"I certainly wasn't expecting this, but I'm very humbled to be voted by my teammates as vice captain and look forward to working closely with Phil and Callan," Scully said.

"Since coming to the Giants I think my leadership is something which has really improved. Obviously, being one of the players with a bit more experience in the squad is a unique thing in itself especially being so young myself.

"I think it has helped me mature a lot more as a person and as a footballer. It's something that I have really embraced. Setting an example through leadership is something I hope to develop over this year and in the years to coming.

"I'm really looking forward to the year ahead and the responsibility that comes with it."

Power will be an assistant coach with the Giants in 2013.
