Casey named as England captain
 Women's Football News 25 May 2012
Casey named as England captain - 25 May 2012 - Women's Football NewsCasey Stoney has been appointed the new captain of the England women's team. 
The 30-year-old will inherit the armband from Faye White, following White's announcement in April that she is expecting her first child. Casey, who recently earned her 100th international cap, had previously been vice captain and has marshalled England on a number of occasions in White's absence. She has donned the armband in four of England's first five Euro 2013 qualifiers and is in line to lead them again next month when Holland visit Salford City Stadium for a crucial qualifier.
National Coach Hope Powell informed Stoney of her decision on Tuesday and she believes the centre back has all the qualities needed to lead her country. "I've known Casey since she was about 15 or 16 and if I looked back then and to where she is now, England captain, you would never connect the two," she began.
"But she has learned lessons along the way and made herself into the player and the leader that she is today.
"She didn't kick a ball in the 2005 Euros, but she worked hard, got her head down and broke into the team.
"Casey is very much in the same mould as Faye," continued Hope. "Very professional, she has a great attitude, she is not afraid to work at her game and she leads by example both on and off the pitch, so I'm delighted for her.
"She is an intelligent footballer, very bright, understands the game and she is great to have around, so, for me, she is the right choice."
