Barmby takes on Tigers role

01 Oct 2009 - 12:18:00

Former England forward Nicky Barmby has been named as the new captain of Hull City, with Ian Ashbee out of action due to a long-term injury.

Thirty-five-year-old Barmby will take on his new role starting against Wigan Athletic this weekend.

Tigers boss Phil Brown told the club's official website: "This is something that has got Nicky's name written all over it.

"He has matured into a leader, never more so than over the last couple of years at Hull City.

"He's had a lot of close relationships with managers during his career and I feel as though I have got a close relationship with him.

"We speak frankly about things and we share things, never more so than about what is happening at Hull City at the moment.

"He is a strong enough character in the dressing room."
