STUART Ludlam has been named Worksop Town captain ahead of today’s season opener against Ashton United.

The defender joined Tigers from Frickley Athletic in June and is seen as a ‘natural leader’ by manager Simon Clark.

“He is an organiser of men. He doesn’t just rant and rave but is very pragmatic in what he says,” added Clark.

“He will organise the team and is a natural leader. He is a good trainer, who always pushes himself, and leads by example.”
