NEW skipper David McCracken says he will be a proud man when he leads Wycombe Wanderers out against Accrington Stanley tomorrow.

The former Dundee United defender was given the captain's armband this week.

He said: "I'm delighted. It's a huge honour. I plan to be a captain on and off the field as well and to do what I can to make sure that people are happy coming into work.

"It's not all about the football."

McCracken wore the armband on a temporary basis at Tannadice but this is his first official captain's role.

He said: "I want to do well at it and show that I'm worthy of being the captain here.

"There were a few good candidates here so I was delighted to get it.

"It is a big responsibility because when you're going through a tough spell people look to their captain to pull them in a bit."

McCracken, who moves into his new house today, said: "I've settled in really quickly. It is a great club and a great set up. It's a family club where the boys are really looked after and they look to get the families involved as well.

"It's a big squad and it's going to be hard for the boys in the team to keep their places.

"The expectations are high around the place. We all want to get into a higher league."
