Tel Sheehy has announced that Andy Turner has accepted the role of First Team Captain for the 2016 Season.
Tel was interviewed, saying: “I was conscious my first decision – the selection of a Captain – would be the most important I will no doubt make in my time as Coach. Hence, I reviewed the attributes to look for in a Captain and who I believed would be best able to assist me to re-energise the squad and create a positive team environment.“
“At the end of last season I was fortunate to spend time working with the team and observe several players, including Andy, who showed great passion for the club, as well as on-field commitment and leadership. However, Andy stood out to me as an obvious choice for Captain due to his positive attitude, strong communication skills and great empathy with his team-mates. I am confident Andy will prove to be an inspiration to both the First Team and the Youth of the club and will endeavour to put his heart and soul into the Captaincy role.”
We caught up with Andy who said: “It was a huge honour for me to simply be placed in that category and then to be asked, well I’m overwhelmed. It's a role I will perform with great pride. I’m so grateful to Tel for this honour and the faith he has shown in me. I look forward to a successful 2016 campaign and playing alongside my friends and team-mates. This is a very proud moment for me and I would like to thank Tel for putting his trust in me.”
Congratulations Andy, we look forward to you leading our team.
