Chey Dunkley named club captain for the 2023/24 season!

4 August 2023

Matt Taylor has named centre-back Chey Dunkley club captain for the upcoming season!

The boss has also appointed Ryan Bowman as vice-captain, with Elliott Bennett also in that category.

Matt Taylor said:

"Chey Dunkley will be captain. The players have known that for a period of time now.

"It is the right decision for the football club, I think he embodies everything that we want. He is a leader and he is a stalwart of the team.

"He plays with his heart on his sleeve and he wants to win, he is polite, he is courteous and he is a good person. He has the best interests of the football club at heart and a lot of our players look up to him.

"But what I must say, and I must make this known to everybody, is that the vice-captain will be Ryan Bowman along with Elliott Bennett who I put in that category as well.

"What we have at this football club with Tom Flanagan and Morgan Feeney is we have not just got one captain and I look at that and I think it is a wonderful position for us to be in.

"We have got a lot of players here with a lot of experience and that is fantastic.

"While Chey will wear the armband I do not just want one captain on the pitch, we want four or five as, ultimately, we are all in the boat, we all have an oar and we all need to be going in the same direction. It is really simple for me."
