STAGS boss Paul Cox has today named midfielder Adam Murray as the club’s captain for the 2011/12 season.

The gutsy midfielder has been integral part of the starting line-up since joining the club from Luton Town last season.

Murray, who is in his third spell at Field Mill, showed his true fighting spirit in last season’s FA Trophy final defeat against Darlington when he battled on against injury to give his all for the cause

Boss Paul Cox said: “Murray has done really well in pre-season and has done everything I have asked of him.

“He has been a leader both on the training ground and on the pitch and he deserves to be the captain.

“Adam Murray is one of the best midfielders at this level when he is fully fit and he will do a good job as captain.”
