"He has great communication skills and is well respected by both the players and staff so it was a simple decision to appoint him as captain."

Dobson said: "Some great names have captained this club and I'm proud to have joined the list.

"I've been here a few years now and enjoy having extra responsibility so it's something I was more than happy to take on."
