RICHARD O’Donnell has been named City’s captain for the new season.

The 31-year-old keeper, who recently signed a two-year contract extension, will wear the armband for the first time against Bolton in the Carabao Cup tomorrow.

O’Donnell said: “I am immensely proud to be captaining such a great club for the season.

“After wearing the armband several times before the curtailment, I was naturally hungry to keep hold of it and enjoy the honour.

“Both myself and and my family have really bought into everything about the club, so it really does mean a lot.

“I am looking forward to the responsibility of leading the lads again next season and hope we are able to push on and achieve something special.”

O’Donnell has played 83 times since signing from Northampton in 2018.

Bantams boss Stuart McCall said: “Richard is an experienced professional and a real club man who really does care a lot about Bradford City.

“Having worked with him for over seven months now, I have seen - first hand - the commitment, determination and leadership he shows every day.

“Although it was a tough decision, given the amount of character in the squad, I have full confidence in Richard to guide us forward to on-field success as the club’s captain.”
