Carlos Edwards will be my captain says Paul Jewell

TOWN manager Paul Jewell has confirmed that Carlos Edwards will once again lead the team next season.

While some fans wondered whether new signing Luke Chambers might be given the honour, Jewell today said he expects Edwards to continue.

Jewell said: “I don’t see any reason to change who wears the armband. Carlos did brilliantly for us last year as skipper and the role seemed to add to his game.

“You don’t have to wear the armband to be a leader and that’s what we want Luke to be, a leader. Like everyone else, we want him to lead by example on the pitch.

“It’s not really about who has the armband. It’s about what you do out on the pitch and in and around the club during the week. That’s what makes a leader.”

Edwards was named captain in February and went on to be named players’ player of the year.
