Lasley honoured with Captain’s role
Keith Lasley has today spoken of his pride at being officially named as Motherwell FC’s new club captain.
And the veteran midfielder, the Motherwell fans Player of the Year the past two seasons, hopes he can emulate some of the successful captains of yesteryear when he starts of his tenure this Saturday at Somerset Park.
“It’s an honour for me,” he told motherwellfc.co.uk
“I filled in a few times last season when Crags (Stephen Craigan) was injured and I certainly enjoyed that role.
“I’m now really looking forward to taking it on in a more regular basis this year and hopefully I can fulfil that to the best of my ability.
“I suppose the Captain is seen as the figurehead of the dressing room both on and off the park. There have been some great skippers in the past at this club and hopefully I can try and emulate them.”
