Michael Murphy has been chosen to succeed Kevin Cassidy as captain of Donegal for the 2011 season.

The 21-year-old has been handed the armband by new manager Jim McGuinness and becomes one of the youngest skippers in the county's history.

The full-forward has spearheaded the Donegal attack since making his senior debut at senior level in 2007.

The Glenswilly clubman also captained the county's Under-21 side to the Ulster title last year.

Donegal will begin their National League Division Two campaign with a home game against Sligo on 5 February, with a series of challenging fixtures against Ulster rivals Tyrone, Derry and Antrim to follow.
