David Morgan has been given the Southport captaincy following David Lynch’s move to Alfreton Town.
The 24-year-old signed a contract extension to 2020 back in July and is a physical presence in the centre of the pitch.
Morgan said to the club’s website: “It’s a huge privilege. I’ve been here just over a year now, so I think I’ve made my mark on the team and hopefully now I can lead by example.
Making 38 appearances, scoring twice so far, he is a regular in the team and was given the captaincy at the weekend after discussions in the week.
