City Women reveal captain and vice-captain for 2017/18 season

Bristol City Women are delighted to confirm Millie Turner has been appointed club captain for the 2017/18 season, with Loren Dykes named vice-captain.

Turner, 21, joined the club in January from Everton Ladies and the midfielder made an immediate impression during the Spring Series.

 

A versatile player, Turner played in every game of the Spring Series, featuring at both centre-half and in central midfield.

 

Joining the club in 2008, Dykes is one of the longest-serving players at the club.

 

A full Welsh international, the dynamic midfielder is currently undertaking her coaching badges alongside her playing commitments.

 

Willie Kirk said of his new captain: “I am delighted that Millie has accepted my offer to become captain for the new season. She leads by example on and off the pitch and epitomises what I expect from all of the players at the club.

 

“We have a great culture that Millie really buys in to; she’s a big character in the dressing room and always has a smile on her face. It’s great to have someone like her around to continue to drive this club forward.”

 

On new vice-captain Dykes, Kirk added: “Loren is one of our longest-serving players and a senior member of this squad. Her attitude and professionalism is second to none.

 

“She embodies what this club is about, giving 100 per cent every time she pulls on the jersey and I’m delighted she’s accepted the chance to become vice-captain.

 

“Loren is a very approachable character and is always on hand to give advice to anyone at the club; we saw that in the Spring Series when Loren took on some coaching duties whilst injured.”
