Carl Magnay Appointed Club Captain

28 July 2017

Carl Magnay has been appointed as the new Club Captain of Hartlepool United.

The 28-year-old joined Pools in the summer of 2015 and has gone on to make 51 appearances in the last two seasons, starring in both defence and midfield.

Magnay has become a favourite with supporters at Victoria Park for his whole-hearted performances and news that he had signed a new contract in the summer was met with huge positivity.

New Pools boss Craig Harrison has been seeking a new captain since being appointed earlier in the summer and has now handed the armband to Magnay, with Scott Loach set to be vice-captain.

“It’s a great honour for me,” Magnay told Pools PlayerHD.

“This is a great Club that I feel lucky to represent so, going in to my third season, to be chosen as the player to lead the team is obviously a huge honour.

“We have got an excellent squad this year, some good players with strong CVs so it’s quite humbling really to be asked to be skipper so I am delighted about it.

“I think this is the right time for me; I am 28 now and I think this is perfect timing for me to step up.

“I know there are extra responsibilities for me off the pitch now so I am looking forward to taking on those roles and I want to try and create a good link between the players and the fans.”
