Richard Wood insists he will be a captain that will be there for his team mates after being named the new Rovers skipper.
A vastly-experienced captain, the summer signing says he will be ready to pass on advice and wisdom to the rest of the squad as well as leading by example on the pitch.
“I just give my all every time,” he said. “I don’t shirk away from any negative things. If we’re not playing well, I dig in and make sure those around me are doing the same thing and are all pulling in the same direction.
“I organise, I lead, I’m loud on the pitch. Off the pitch I just want everyone to be together, join everyone in and make sure everyone is happy.
“I’m not one for shouting and bawling - don’t get me wrong, I can do it when it needs to be done and I’m sure at half time a few times this season I’ll definitely be doing that if things aren’t going right. But I like to just speak to people quietly, make sure everyone is okay, feeling alright.
“I give encouragement and help when it’s needed, advice. I’m always there for everybody and that’s what I want people to know - that I’m there for whoever, whether you’re young, old, kitchen staff, groundsman. I’ll always put myself forward and be there to help.”
