David Ferguson has been announced as Blackpool’s new captain for the coming season.

The 21-year-old will wear the armband at Bloomfield Road after being announced by Neil mcDonald this afternoon.

Ferguson, who has made just six senior career starts, joined from Sunderland last season and now looks likely to be Pool’s first choice left-back for the coming season.

He said: “It’s good to be captain, it’s a real honour and hopefully we’ll have a good season.

“I will be an encouraging captain and someone who can hopefully be a good leader.”
