Captain Danny Lowe says it will be a ‘massive honour’ to lead out FC Halifax Town in Sunday’s season-opener at Cambridge.
The Town skipper is about to embark on his fifth campaign with the Shaymen, making him the longest-serving outfield player at the club.
Lowe admits his spell at the Shay has flown by since following boss Neil Aspin from Harrogate in 2009, and can’t wait for his time at the club to hit new heights this weekend.
He said: “It’ll be up there among the very best moments I’ve had in my career.
“I’m looking forward to it and it’ll be something I’ll cherish.
“It’ll be a massive honour because it’s a great achievement for myself personally and the club to get back to where they were.
“They’ve been memorable years but they’ve gone pretty quick.”
Lowe is keen for Town to maintain the recipe for success that has seen them achieve three promotions in the last four seasons.
The centre-back says Town have a good enough squad to be competitive in the division, but wants the team to preserve their winning philosophy.
He said: “We need to stick to what we’re good at - team spirit, working hard and making sure everyone looks after themselves properly.
“It’s important we all pull in the same direction and stick together on and off the pitch.
“We’ve got the quality so if we can stick to our principles and our beliefs then I think we can hold our own.”
