Offord Would Welcome Captain's Armband

3 August 2021

Defender says it would be an honour to lead the club after coming through Academy.

Luke Offord says it would be an honour to follow in the footsteps of fellow Academy graduates, Perry Ng and Harry Pickering and be named Crewe Alexandra captain.

David Artell is keeping naming his captain very close to his chest with there being a few contenders to replace Harry Pickering, who left on a permanent basis to Blackburn Rovers at the conclusion of the season.

Offord captained the club for a period of time against Aston Villa in our behind closed doors practice match at the weekend and has emerged as a possible captain going forward.

The defender told the club’s official website: “The captain’s armband is definitely something I would like. It would be a great honour having been at the club since the age of 7.

“It is up to the manager and I know there are a few contenders for it but it is something I would really like.

“You can only see what it was like for Perry and Harry and how it spurred them on. Perry led the club to promotion from League Two and it would be great to emulate that by becoming captain and helping the club to promotion from League One. “
