Newby to continue as club captain
First Team Manager Kieron O’Brien has confirmed Oliver Newby will continue his role as first team captain for the 2016/17 season. Newby helped guide Foss to an unbeaten league campaign last season as they lifted the league title. In addition O’Brien has decided to name last years ‘Players Player of the Year’ Mark Willoughby as Vice-Captain to Newby.
O’Brien spoke of the news: ‘I’ve known Oli for a good number of years now, having played together at Dunnington FC and we see the game from a very similar perspective, he knows the club and players very well and fits the bill for me. Mark has shown superb leadership skills throughout his career with both players offering me great support and leadership.’
