Brunt To Continue Captincy

Chris Brunt is going to continue captaining West Bromwich Albion. The new boss Alan Irvine confirmed that yesterday.
West Brom has changed managers quite a lot in the last few seasons, but, there’s been no change in captaincy. Brunt has been leading the side for the last three years and he will have the armband during the 2014-15 Season too.
According to Irvine, there is no point replacing Brunt as skipper at the moment. He has been pretty good at that position in the recent times. Also, he is a unanimously respected figure in the dressing room.
When asked who will be leading the team in the league this season, Irvine said, “Its Chris Brunt only.”
“There will be no change in captaincy because it’s not necessary right now. Chris is the guy whom everyone in the camp admires and I believe he is the right man to lead this team.”
Brunt, who is originally a winger, but, can play in the midfield too, has been playing for West Brom since 2007. He had been a part of the Championship club Sheffield Wednesday prior to that.
The 29-year old has not been absent from action during his stint at the Hawthorns. Almost in every season, he’s played more than 30 games for the Baggies and that shows how important he is as a player and also as a leader for them.
The Baggies are going to start their journey in the coming league on their home ground i.e. the Hawthorns. They will be playing against Sunderland in that first match on 16th of August.
West Brom had escaped relegation by a slender margin in the previous season. They had finished as the 17th positioned team in the league table with only 36 points.
