Tamika Mkandawire has been named club captain
Graham Turner has today confirmed that Tamika Mkandawire will be Shrewsbury Town captain for the upcoming SKY Bet League 1 campaign.
Tam joined Town ahead of pre-season and has shown the Town fans the experience and leadership that he has brought to the clubs defence. The 30 year old has played over 300 games during spells with Hereford United, Leyton Orient, Millwall and Southend United.
It's a position that the Town manager has taken his time to announce but he believes that Tam is the right man for the job:”Tam will be the team captain for the season, he's got a lot of experience, and I’ve known him from his time at Hereford and
“He's a good leader on the pitch and a good person in the dressing room and has a good perception of the game. He's a good talker but I want the from all of the players
“The same attributes can be said for Dave Winfield and he was another candidate for captain but I've just gone for that little bit more experience that Tam brings.
“He's played a lot of games at a good level; to play at Millwall in front of the demands of their fans on a regular basis takes a lot of character.
“I think as skipper he will do a good job and with Dave Winfield alongside those two will add a lot to the side.”
