Port Adelaide midfielder Travis Boak will step down as captain of the Power after six years as the club’s skipper.

The 30-year-old captained the club in 137 games, the most in the club’s history.

“Six years into the job I think it’s the right time to hand it over to the next person, whoever that is,” Boak told

“I’ve hit 30 now and I’m at the back end of my career so I think it’s a good chance for a change of direction.

“The club is in a good position with everything that’s been set up off the field and on the field with all the players we’ve got in in the past few years, so it’s a perfect opportunity for the next person to come in and take the lead and push the group forward.”
