Ashbee Confirmed As Hull Captain

Ian Ashbee will captain Hull City in their inaugural Premier League campaign, Manager Phil Brown has confirmed.

Hull City boss Phil Brown has confirmed that last season’s skipper in the Championship, Ian Ashbee, will also lead the Tigers in their debut season in the top flight.

Although Brown has brought in experienced campaigners George Boateng from Middlesbrough and Anthony Gardner from Spurs, he is keeping faith with the leadership qualities of Ashbee.

The 31-year-old midfielder led Hull throughout their ascent from League Two (level four) to the Premiership, and will wear the armband when the Tigers take on Fulham at their KC Stadium on the opening day of the new campaign.

Brown (pictured) told the Hull Daily Mail: “It wasn't a difficult decision for me, not at all.

"We've always got on very well during our time together, and we've seen to eye-to-eye on almost everything.

"There have been times where we've not agreed on things, but we've always put those times behind us and moved on. We've moved forward together.

"When I arrived as manager, I said to him I would take him to the Premier League, and Ash said the same thing back.

"We've fulfilled those promises now, and Ian will get the chance to lead out the side in the Premier League."
