Danny Harrison led the team out on Saturday after previous captain Alex Revill handed it back saying; “I’ve got a crap record as captain so decided to give it up.”
Boss Andy Scott told todays Star that theres plenty of leaders in the team already; “We’ve got leaders in the side - like those people who have had the armband, as well as such as Jason Taylor, Dale Tonge, and now we’ve got in Guy Branston and Jon Harley,”
“You don’t want to give the captaincy to loan players but they’re both are leaders in various ways. To be honest, whether a player is captain or not is neither here nor there. You should have enough leaders in a team. Everyone should be responsible for organising and making sure people are doing their jobs."
“Danny Harrison understands the game and he’s a player I’ve always liked, He does all the scruffy stuff, appreciated by the team, but people don’t always see what he does. He’s a valuable type of player.”
Scott spoke of Guy Branston’s confidence. “He’s a lad confident in his own ability and he dilutes that into the rest of the squad in the dressing room, He’s come from the outside and seen them play and he’s told them they’re a good side, playing some good stuff but just not getting the results."
“Sometimes you need that outside perspective. We keep telling them but sometimes you need to hear from another source.”
“When he (Branston) goes into a tackle you wonder how many limbs might come off or where the ball will end up or whether the other bloke will get up or not and it’s exciting, But he does it wholeheartedly, puts all his effort in and wants those around to do the same thing.”
