Club Captain

Wednesday 8 August 2007

The Club can confirm that following Wednesday's training session Brian McBride was handed the Club Captaincy by Manager Lawrie Sanchez.

McBride first official game as Club Captain will be this Sunday's Premiership opener against Arsenal at the Emirates. The striker spoke proudly of the news this afternoon as he focused on the season ahead.

"Lawrie asked me to be Captain today and I was delighted. Obviously the Club has quite a few good leaders in the players that were here already and also the players Lawrie has brought into the squad . To be asked to Captain Fulham is a real honour.

"I think that things are going well right now and our fitness is at a high level. We’re definitely moving forward in terms of everyone getting a good understanding of each others abilities and even more so in terms of what the Manager wants from us as players."
