Andy Hessenthaler has named his new captain.

Revealed at Thursday night’s ‘Meet the Manager Evening’, Athletic’s boss confirmed defender Kevin Lokko will wear the armband, with recent signing Michael Woods given the role of vice-captain.

Lokko has started every league game since Hessenthaler took charge last October and earlier this year was named ‘National League Player of the Month’ for January.

The 23-year-old was also voted ‘Players player of the season’ by his teammates at the end of the last campaign.

Congratulations Kevin!
