Carlos Edwards is hoping to be offered the captain's armband again in 2012/13, but says he will be fully supportive of whoever fills the role.
Ipswich boss Paul Jewell first entrusted Edwards with the responsibility of leading Town in a 1-0 victory over Portsmouth on 14th February, and stuck with him for the remainder of the campaign.
The 33-year-old would welcome the opportunity to skipper the Championship outfit again next term, with his experience making him a leading contender.
He is, however, prepared to accept that the final decision will rest with Jewell and his plans to take Ipswich forward.
"I've enjoyed captaining the side towards the back end of this season and I think I've earned the backing of the other guys in the team," said Edwards.
"It's been a good experience for me and I would love to remain as captain of Ipswich Town.
"But, at the same time, if the gaffer wants to change it around next season and hand the armband to someone else, then there wouldn't be any hard feelings.
"Hopefully people can see that I go out every game and try to do my best for the team, and when I'm wearing that armband I try and lead the team to the best of my ability also.
"I feel very honoured to be captain of this football club and I see it as an extra responsibility that I now have.
"If that continues next season, then great but if it doesn't then I will fully understand the gaffer's decision."
