Sheffield Steelers head coach Arron Fox has named his captains ahead of the 2019-20 Elite league season.
Jonathan Phillips remains as club captain but in a change of policy Fox has named four assistants, two for at home and two more on the road.
Joining Phillips will be Aaron Brocklehurst and Robert Dowd (home)
and John Armstrong and Brendan Connolly (road)
Fox explained. “We have decided to go with 1 Captain and 2 Home and 2 Away Alternate Captains.
“Jonno was the clear choice for the captaincy. As a coach you couldn’t ask for a better leader. He’s one of those guys who leads by example and does everything the right way. On the ice, in the weight room and away from the rink.
“Our Home “A”’s are Robert Dowd and Aaron Brocklehurst And Our Away “A”s are
John Armstrong and Brendan Connolly.
“All these guys are really true Pro’s And bring some different positives to the table. With the veteran group we have they all will play a big part in our success this year and are all absolutely Team First Guys”
