TEAM NEWS | Ben Tozer appointed Club Captain; will assist first-team captain Luke Young

Centre-back added to leadership group

30 September 2021

Wrexham AFC are pleased to announce we have appointed Ben Tozer to the role of club captain, as we expand our leadership team in the dressing room.

Tozer will take on the club captain roles, backing up Luke Young who remains first-team captain and the man in the armband on the pitch.

Centre-back Tozer, 31, who signed in the transfer window and has started all seven games since, was previously club captain at Cheltenham Town.

And on being appointed, he said he was keen to assist the back-to-back Player of the Year as the players work to keep standards high in the dressing room.

He said: “Youngy is still the captain but I’ll back him up. I’ll do all the not-so-nice jobs attached to the captaincy!

“He’s got the respect of the changing room and been here for a long time. My role isn’t to step on his toes, I’m backing him up.

“I’m not the fine-master in the dressing room, but I’m big in terms of the standards. Standards around the place need to be high if we want to be successful and that’s what we’re after.”

Manager Phil Parkinson said of the appointment: “Ben is a player with good leadership qualities. He’ll work with Luke Young and be a good link between the staff and the dressing room too.”
