Bennett Didn't Need Convincing

New club skipper Scot Bennett has said that he didn't need any convincing when manager Paul Tisdale approached him over taking the armband this season.

Speaking to the Official Site Bennett explained that the gaffer called him in and asked if he'd be willing to take on the role, and he explained why he thought he was the perfect choice and it left Bennett knowing exactly what an honour it would be to lead the team officially.

'He wanted to know if I was willing to work with him and take the information that he gives me to pass onto the players, obviously I was delighted with that and I jumped at the chance. He also said not to change anything I've been doing - to lead by example with my performances.'

Bennett goes on to say that he's not the type of bloke to give anybody a rollicking if they aren't on their game, because ultimately every player knows when they aren't on the pace so being shouted at isn't going to improve you in the moment, whereas some support and encouragement can go a hell of a long way, and that's going to be his style he feels.
