    Head Coach Grant McCann said: “Jordy has developed on and off the pitch in the year I have worked with him. He’s a huge character in the changing room and his demeanour, will to win and attitude is there for all to see. He will only grow even more – both as a player and and person – with the armband. I’m delighted to make him the Club Captain.”

    Reflecting on the honour of being given the armband, de Wijs added: “It’s nice that the gaffer has the confidence in me to take on this role. I’m still going to be the same player and same team-mate for everyone but I think that this role suits me and I’m the right person to take it on.

    “Now is the right time for me to take on a bit more responsibility and do a bit extra to make sure everything goes well.

    “As soon as the gaffer came to me, I was so proud. Ever since I first came here, I’ve felt at home. I’ve been here for two years now so I think that this honour shows the development I have made during my time here.

    “I know we weren’t in a good run of form before the league was suspended and everyone has already written us off, but now is the time for us to show just how good we are and how good we can be.

    “I’m really pleased and proud to have been made captain of this great Club.”

    Congratulations Jordy. If you can fill the team with your enthusiasm and fighting spirit, we might just be alright.

    I’m shocked McCann has given it to him, I was convinced it’d be the keeper or a striker!
    I always prefer CB or CM as Captain TBH!

    I suspect the only ones to consider were
    Long dont agree with that
    De Wijs, Burke or Stewart

    Excellent call. Great to see Jordy given the captaincy. Has any one heard who is to be vice-captain?

    I hope Stewart is VC. I also hope he gets offered a new deal. He’s become an important player for us on and off the pitch.

    Seems a good choice .... but let's be honest, there weren't many other sensible options!
