The Over 50s captain is Neil Brown who plays for Herne Bay
Paul Murtagh phone me last Wednesday with the good news of being selected in the 10 man squad .
Paul explained what the details were for the forthcoming weekend , but then said there was something else he needed to tell me, he then told me he would like me to Captain the team,’ wow Captain of your country’. I must admit, everything he said after that just went in one ear & out the other, once I finished talking to Paul , I just walked around in a daze for a while just thinking what he had said, it’s not every day you get told your going to represent your country let alone be Captain , in all my player days this is right up there , if not the best thing in my football Career.
Spencer Pratten of Chelmsford has been appointed as captain of the over 60s.
Spencer sent me the following unprompted response:
Just a quick e mail to say how honoured I am to have woken up this morning as England Over 60’s captain. I was so pleased to have been selected for the team, but to get to skipper the side as well… it’s fairy tale territory!
I would also like to say what a great team you have assembled; as professional an outfit as you could have wished for and as long as I am able to hold an England shirt, then I will give my all both on the pitch, as player and captain, and off the pitch in any capacity I am asked to perform in my role.
Thanks to you and the management team for this amazing opportunity and I can promise I will not let anybody down.
Very best wishes,
