Danny Horton has been made Boston Town captain.
The 18-year-old has been acting as stand-in skipper in the absence of Duran Reynolds.
Poachers boss Gary Edgley has now given him the role on a more permanent basis as Reynolds is likely to be out until February. His rehabilitation from an injury he suffered in August is taking longer than expected.
Edgley is full of praise for Horton, who has shown a maturity beyond his years since arriving at the club.
He said: "Danny has been brilliant since he joined us from Lincoln City. He’s very professional at training and in games. Sometimes we forget how young he is because of the way he carries himself on the pitch. He has a lot of respect from the players which is crucial when you captain a side.
"Also he has fully committed himself to us, turning down offers from higher level teams to remain at Boston, a loyalty that can be rare to find in modern day football."
