Harrison Burrows

Harrison Burrows has been named as the Posh vice-captain for the 2023-2024 campaign.

Peterborough United manager Darren Ferguson has confirmed that Academy graduate Harrison Burrows has been named as the club’s vice-captain for the 2023-2024 campaign.

Burrows will be the deputy to Ephron Mason-Clark, who was named as the club’s skipper during the summer by the Posh boss.

Ferguson explained his rationale for naming Burrows as the vice-captain: “I have known Harrison for a long time. He obviously came through the Academy at the club and he has been involved in the first team squad for a long time.

“When I named Ephron as the captain, Harrison did come into my thinking but I believe making him vice-captain is the right thing to do. He is part of the leadership group, he is showing a lot of good qualities, he knows the club better than anyone and I believe it is the right time.

“He is showing a real maturity in his game, he can play in so many different positions, even though I believe we have found one for him. He sets a good example in the way he trains and plays so it became a very comfortable decision for me.”

Burrows said: “I was having a chat with the manager just about pre-season and at the end of that meeting he told me that I would be vice-captain and obviously it was a really good moment for me as someone who lives locally and has come through the Academy.

“I immediately rang the family and they were really happy for me. I feel that I have grown a bit when it comes to being a leader, I have been here a long time, I can help a lot of the new players in the dressing room.”
