Ciderspace News Page : Glovers Set New First Team Captain And Vice-Captain
3 August 2011 : Glovers Set New First Team Captain And Vice-Captain
Yeovil Town manager Terry Skiverton has said that he has chosen a new first team captain for the 2011-12 season. During last season, the Glovers started with Craig Alcock as their club captain, before switching to Paul Huntington during the closing stages when a back problem meant that Alcock was largely out of the first team.

During the current pre-season, Huntington missed a number of the early matches, and midfielder Paul Wotton took over the armband, and the former Plymouth Argyle and Southampton player has kept that role, even after Huntington returned to the starting eleven. It therefore comes as little surprise to find that Wotton is now being given the role on a permanent basis. Skiverton explained to BBC Somerset that both players will play a role in the players' hierarchy for the coming season:

"It was a tough one really, because Paul Huntington did so well last year. He's got a strong voice in the changing room, he leads by example, which is similar to what Paul (Huntington) has done as well. But he (Paul Wotton) has just got that little bit more experience. Paul (Huntington) has done fantastic for us. He (Huntington) was injured during a lot of the pre-season, so he was out of a lot of the stuff that we were doing, but he is now vice-captain and I know that with those two that I'm really happy to go into the new season with them as captain and vice-captain."
