Shrimps captaincy roles confirmed

28 July 2022

The Shrimps are delighted to confirm that goalkeeper Connor Ripley has been appointed Club captain with Donald Love taking on the role of match captain.

Both players joined the Club this summer and have clearly made an impact behind the scenes, with manager Derek Adams informing the two candidates on Thursday morning. 

Ripley is no stranger to wearing the armband, having led the team out on multiple occasions during pre-season. 

Upon receiving the news, Club captain Ripley said: “I am honoured to be named as Club captain, and I am really happy. 

“The gaffer has chosen myself and Donald [Love] to be captains and we will show that his decision was the right one throughout the season. 

“The conversations I had with the manager before I signed were always positive, I am a leader, I have never been a captain at a club before, so it is a real privilege. 

“I think you can be as vocal as you want to be, but you have to say the right things, you have to act in the right manner as well. I like a good joke about and a mess around, but I want to win and I want to improve, I would like to think the way I do things will help the team as a whole."

Donald Love added: “It is a proud moment for me, hopefully me and Rippers [Connor Ripley] can do a good job and represent the Club in a good way. 

“It is my first time taking the captain’s armband, so hopefully I can do well when I am in the post, I don’t need extra motivation but having the responsibility is massive for me on a personal level. 

“I want to get out there and show the gaffer that his choice in me is justified, and hopefully I can do that for him across the season."
