Sophie takes Academy armband

Sophie takes Academy armband - 29 Jun 2015 - Women's Football NewsThe second half of the season will see newly selected captain Sophie Ingle lead Bristol Academy out, supported by Loren Dykes as vice captain. 
Preparations are in full swing for the commencement of the second half of the season at Bristol Academy. The squad have been in training with new manager Willie Kirk for a number of weeks, building for the first game back in action against Chelsea on the 12th July.
On selecting the captaincy, Willie Kirk said: "With Grace (McCatty) heading to Zambia for five months to do charity work, one of the first things that I have had to do since joining BAWFC was to identify a new captain. It was never going to be a like-for-like replacement, but what I wanted was a player who had the respect of every player not only in the first team, but the whole club. A player who would use actions as well as words as a way of encouraging her team mates and leading by example.
"I needed a level headed player who can be my communicator on the pitch and get information across to players regardless of the current state of play. A number of players ticked a lot of the boxes, but I felt that Sophie ticked more than most. She is a vastly experienced player, both at club and international level, yet it is easy to forget how young she still is.
"She has a very calm character which I think is necessary in a captain and is a leading player not only at this club but in the WSL. She was also recently appointed the new Welsh captain, and I'm looking forward to working with her and helping her to develop in this role."
On her appointment, Sophie expressed her pride: "I am very proud to be named as captain and to help lead the players into the challenge of the second part of the season. I believe we have a willingness to improve and a fight to get results. The whole team are ready to get back onto the pitch to put things right.
She will be supported by vice captain Loren Dykes. Kirk explained: "Again, Loren is very calm in the heat of the battle, but when she speaks, she has a great presence and everyone listens. Loren has been at BAWFC a number of years now, and knows what it means to play for the club and I think that can help all players throughout the BAWFC family, develop an affinity and loyalty for the club similar to the one that Loren has."
