CALLUM Howe has been named as Solihull Moors’ new captain following the departure of Kyle Storer earlier this week.
Howe has made more than 100 appearances and scored 12 goals for Moors since he signed from Harrogate Town in 2019.
The defender has deputised as captain for Storer for much of the 2022/23 season and manager Neal Ardley has now handed the 28-year-old the armband on a permanent basis.
Howe said: “It’s a proud thing for me to become Club captain at Solihull Moors and something I’m looking forward to.
“I like to think that any of the lads can come and speak to me about anything, I’ll always try and be a leader on and off the pitch and I guess that’s the reason for me being the one to lead this team out going forward.”
Moors boss Ardley added: “We are pleased to confirm that Callum Howe will be our captain going forward.
“Callum has been vice captain to Kyle Storer so is the natural replacement. He’s a leader at the back, someone that the lads love and respect, therefore he’s the perfect fit for the job.”
Veteran midfielder and former captain Storer returned to Nuneaton Borough earlier this week to bring an end to his five-year association with Moors.
Howe added: “Stoz was one of the best captains that I’ve had to be honest, on and off the pitch he was a big character and a big influence on the boys.
“To reach 200 appearances at one club and 700 appearances over your career, not many players can say that they’ve done that. So, fair play to Kyle and we wish him all the best at Nuneaton.”
