Town midfielder skippers the side for the first time as Blues round off home campaign with a win

Cole Skuse has described being handed the captain’s armband as a proud moment at any point in a playing career, but especially at a club like Town.

The midfielder skippered the Blues for the first time in the final match at Portman Road of the 2015/16 campaign as Town signed off with a 3-2 win over MK Dons.

“The armband felt tight on my arm, and I think I’ve stretched it for Chambo!” He told Ipswich Player HD.

“It was a special moment for myself, really. The gaffer said to me yesterday that Chambo had a slight injury and you’re going to be captain.

“At any stage or at any level to be asked to be captain is a privilege and massive honour but to do it at a club like this, under a manager like Mick McCarthy was special.

“Overall the season has been disappointing because we didn’t finish where we feel we should have finished and we haven’t exceeded expectations. We want to finish in the top-six, we made it obvious, we made it clear, so you have to look back at it with disappointment.

“We’ve still got one game left so we’re going to try and finish it on a high so we can finish as high as we can.”
