Rochdale appoint new captain

Rochdale Hornets have appointed new signing Sean Penkywicz as the captain for the 2020 season.

Penkywicz joined the club in the close season from League One side Workington Town. He will be joined by fellow new recruit Andy Lea as vice-captain.

Head Coach Matt Calland told the club website: “Sean is probably the most experienced player in the squad.”

“I’ve coached him before at Halifax where he was captain there as well. He leads by example and you know what you’re getting from him.

“He’s coming to the twilight of his career so we have to be careful what he does in training, but I know come game day that he’s going to give 110%. He leads right from the front which is what you want.

“Andy has come in with a great attitude. He talks well, his attitude is spot on. He will be supporting Penky.”
