Dean Smith has been given the Sheffield Wednesday captaincy manager Chris Turner.
In the past Smith captained Leyton Orient
32-year-old Smith joined Hillsborough side from Leyton Orient on a free transfer last
February and made an immediate impression on the Owls.
The former Orient skipper was then voted Wednesday's player of the month for March and April.
Turner thinks that Smith will make a great captain.
"He goes out with the attitude of wanting to win and he demands things from other players," Turner told the club's official website.
"He's got a voice in the dressing room and out on the field and that's what you need from a captain."
