Darren O’Dea and Cammy Kerr have been named as club captain and vice captain at Dens Park, Dundee have confirmed.
Irishman O’Dea said he was ‘honoured’ to take on the role permanently from James McPake, who will now focus on his recovery from injury.
Life-long fan Kerr has been given the vice-captaincy nod after a successful full season at right back. A statement from the Dark Blues said that the 21-year -old ” is a credit to the club on and off the park.”
New skipper O’Dea, who joined Dundee in January 2016, added: “It’s a great honour for me, one of the highlights of my career. I’d like to thank the gaffer for making me captain.
“My role won’t change too much as I’ve always had responsibility in the team anyway. We already have a couple of leaders in the dressing room and part of my role will be to bring out more leaders while also helping Cammy and the other younger players.
“I’m delighted for Cammy to be made vice-captain, he deserves it after the progression he has made over the last 18 months.”
