Craig Brown has confirmed this afternoon that Richard Foster will be the new Aberdeen FC captain for season 2011/12.

 

Richard spoke to RedWeb shortly after he was told the news this afternoon "I must admit it came as something of a shock when the gaffer told me he was making me captain as there are more senior players in the squad. It's a tremendous honour and a privilege to have been asked and I will do everything I can to justify the faith the manager has shown in me. I played under Russell Anderson and Scott Severin here and learned a lot from both of them and I'm sure that will stand me in good stead.

 

"It's not just about the skipper though. You can be the best captain in the world but if the team doesn't gel, it won't happen. However, I've seen enough since I've come back to the club to see that this is a close knit group and one that gets on well together and we're all confident ahead of the new season."

I think this is just for tonights game guys.  CB stated he would be trying various captains out before deciding. Mackie was captain vs Brechin and will be Captain vs Villareal

 

says on Redweb it's for the season.

 

Thought it was between him and Mawene for it, considering Mawene's only signed for a year and Foster's been here for a while it makes sense I suppose.
