Ben Whiteman has been named as Rovers’ team captain for the 2019/20 Sky Bet League One campaign.

The midfielder was a standout performer last season will now lead the side out in Darren Moore’s first season in charge.

James Coppinger has been appointed as club captain ahead of his 16th season with the club, taking over the role from Andy Butler after his departure to Scunthorpe United.

Manager Darren Moore said: “I’m pleased to be able to confirm Ben as the team captain given how important he has become as a player for this club.

“When selecting a captain it is important to assess how players are not only on the pitch but off it as well, and Ben is exactly what I was looking for.

“Having James as club captain is key given his experience, he knows the club inside and out and is an inspiration to those around him.”
