Manager thoughts on who might captain Town next season

Manager Graham Turner has revealed Shrewsbury Town could have two captains this season.
He's considering appointing both a team captain and club captain to replace Ian Sharps following his move to Rotherham.
"There's the prospect of two captains, one a club captain to oversee things off the field, and the other as team captain," said Graham.
"Sometimes you combine the two as we did with Ian Sharps but there's now the prospect of two appointments.
"There's also a players' committee to be formed with a cross section of players just to make sure we keep the right ethics and the spirit in the dressing room.
"They can oversee some of the minor disciplinary things like lateness, leaving kit on the training ground and players not having a water bottle with them.
"All these things are governed by the players' committee and the fines are handed out to the players.
"Anything more serious I get involved in but if it's a self regulated dressing room and if we can get that going again that will be fine."
