Proud To Be Captain - Wilbraham

Aaron Wilbraham has spoken of his pride at being named Bristol City captain for season 2015/16.

The forward will lead City out at Sheffield Wednesday tomorrow for the big season opener at Hillsborough (kick-off 3pm). 

Speaking on Bristol City Player HD, Wilbraham said: “It will be a proud moment for me. 

“I wore the armband a few times last season and really enjoyed it. I’ve been a vice-captain a few times in the past, like I was last season to Wadey (Wade Elliott). 

“I think everyone dreams of doing it and to get to at this late stage in my career makes me proud. 

“The manager spoke to me about it at the start of pre-season and I was buzzing when I found out.” 

City will be backed by more than 1,000 supporters in South Yorkshire. 

Wilbraham said: “Everyone gets excited about the opening day of the season. 

“We’ve got momentum from last year and we want to take that into this campaign. We got used to winning games and want to continue that trend at Sheffield Wednesday. 

“It’s a big, old-fashioned club with a terrific stadium and one all the lads are looking forward to.”
