Richard Foster Named New Dons Skipper
Craig Brown has this afternoon confirmed that Richard Foster will captain Aberdeen in the forthcoming 2010/2011 season. Foster, who has made 212 league appearances in a seven year spell at the club, spent last season on loan at Rangers, where he made 15 league appearances. Foster's stint at Ibrox could make him a divisive choice among some fans, but it is difficult to see any better options among the senior Dons players. Striker Darren Mackie wore the armband for the 3-1 friendly victory over Brechin on Friday night, but Foster's appointment looks to be a confirmation that the versatile full back will play a key role for Aberdeen in the coming season. As of yet no Vice-Captain has been announced but Andrew Considine and Darren Mackie seem the most likely options.
