Captaincy is a privilege, says Frecklington

The Millers' new skipper talks to

Rotherham United midfielder Lee Frecklington says it is a privilege to have been awarded the armband at AESSEAL New York Stadium following his appointment as club captain last week.

The Millers’ longest-serving player was delighted at being made skipper and ranks it highly amongst his successes with the club.

“It’s obviously a huge privilege and a nice achievement to cap off the three years that I’ve had here,” he told

“To be captain of any football club is a great honour. It means you’re thought of highly by the people there and that’s a nice personal achievement.”

Frecklington has previously skippered the Millers when called upon and admits he enjoys the responsibility and hopes his commitment to the cause will serve him well as he leads the team this season.

“When Craig [Morgan] was here and he was injured I had the armband and I did enjoy it so it’s nice to get it on a permanent basis.

“I think I’m a lead by example type captain. I’m not a shouter and a screamer and hopefully people can look at my attitude and how I train every day and it can rub off on everybody."
