New skipper quietly confident
New skipper Ashley Westwood will lead by his playing example rather than trying to copy the vocal approach of his predecessor in the role.
|"Dave was a terrific captain and he's given me good advice on how to carry it through" - Ashley Westwood|
Westwood does have previous experience in doing the job but openly recognises he certainly has very big boots to fill.
"It's a massive honour to wear the armband," he told This is Staffordshire. "There were three of us sharing the captaincy at the start of last season - me, Lee Bell and Dave. But I thought Dave deserved to take it on his own to see us over the line.
"Dave was a terrific captain and he's given me good advice on how to carry it through," Westwood added. "He's a brilliant character, but I'm a lot quieter and I'll have to lead in a different way. I'm not one for shouting and bawling."
