Chris Hargreaves has confirmed that Josh Staunton will be named Captain for the 2022/23 season.
Speaking exclusively to The Gloverscast’s Ian Perkins following the draw with Taunton he said the defender/midfielder (and occasional player-manager) will lead the side this season.
It is likely that new left back Jamie Reckord will don the armband should Staunton ever miss out.
“Josh [Staunton] will be the captain, he’s a leader, a winner and a top character, but since Jamie [Reckord] has been in the building he’s been excellent.
He’s shown why he has played a lot of games, he wants to help younger players and I thought tonight he was resilient.”
“At the moment, we have a young squad, there’s a group of players that I’ve managed to keep hold of (from last season) which was vital but tonight was about minutes, staying clear of injuries and getting out of here and looking to the next game.”
Staunton has led Yeovil out a number of times already calling it an ‘honour’ when called upon last season with Luke Wilkinson and Mark Little missing at various times.
Congratulations to Josh and Jamie on their new roles.
