Yeovil Town midfielder Joe Edwards has now absolutely confirmed his position as Club Captain for the 2014-15 season. The 23 year old has taken over the reins from Jamie McAllister, who left the club at the end of last season, and as one of the Glovers longest serving players, with 93 appearances to his name, and an ever-present in last year's team, he is one of the more logical names to pick for that role.
Earlier today, his boss Gary Johnson pretty much confirmed that Edwards would be the man to take on that role, and the Gloucester-born player this afternoon was happy to go public on that fact:
"I'm delighted to be named Captain for this season, it's a huge honour for me! Can't wait for the season to start now!"
Edwards will be working with ten new faces for the 2014-15 season, having seen a significant turnover of players over the summer, meaning that he will be leading a new-look squad during that time. However, with most of those signed up on or around the start of July, the former Bristol City academy player feels that there has been plenty of opportunity for him to get to know his new team-mates well:
"By doing that it gave us a chance to have the whole of pre-season together. So if there was anything going wrong at the start, we could iron that out and get it ready for the start of the season. We had a really good season last year, and although we got relegated in the end we competed really well at that level. So we're definitely justifying our tag as one of the favourites to go up this year and hopefully we can do that."
