Murphy Captaincy

6 August 2015

Peter Murphy named Captain

Jim Bentley has today announced his Captain and Vice Captain for the forthcoming 2015-16 season.

Peter Murphy will captain the side whilst Shaun Beeley takes on the vice captain role.

Murphy captained the side during pre season friendlies against Liverpool and Bury, when he scored his first goal for the club.

Jim Bentley commented: “Since arriving at the club for pre season, Murph has shown all the leadership qualities I’ve been looking for.

“He’s a natural leader and a player who the rest of the squad respect.

“You always need more than one leader on the pitch and Shaun lead by example last season and he’s the natural choice for vice captain.”
