Taylor named new Wellington Phoenix captain

Western United FC show a glimpse of the preparations going into their debut season in the A-League.

Former Premier League defender Steven Taylor has been handed the Wellington Phoenix captain's armband after 11 seasons in the care of Andrew Durante.

Coach Ufuk Talay confirmed Taylor will lead a new-look Phoenix in the 2019-20 A-League, after Durante was one of 14 players to depart from last season.

The 33-year-old Taylor played more than 200 games for Newcastle United and impressed in his maiden Phoenix campaign last year alongside Durante in central defence.

Taylor made a winning start to his captaincy as the Phoenix steamrolled Central League club Wairarapa United 7-0 in Masterton on Wednesday.

New forwards David Ball and Jaushua Sotirio both bagged doubles while Mexican midfield signing Ulises Davila also registered a goal.
