Dobson made captain
An interesting but correct decision from Dean Holden to make George Dobson captain over Jayden Stockley.
Dobson is a thoroughly better leader, and someone who I think plays in a position that has more influence on the game and his teammates. If I did a straw vote I would say Dobbo is most fan’s favourite player, and that substance over style.
A captain should also be able to carry the weight of the crowd as well as his teammates and frankly not stand there waving hands above heads shouting at colleagues.
Nonetheless it is a tough pill to swallow for Stockley. First he is dropped for an 18-year old, and then loses the armband all within the first week of a new boss showing up.
Despite the understandable fluffiness of Holden’s comments towards him, I would think this severely puts Stockley’s nose out of joint. Does he I wonder now sit on Holden and Andy Scott’s list of players to be shifted in January?
Similarly does this secure Dobson’s signature for that contract extension in the summer. Despite our dreadful form and league standing in the 18 months he has been here, George has been the one shining light.
A local lad, I would hope too that the 25-year feels that the potential of the club if realized is something he wants to be a part of, especially now as club captain.
