Maidstone United boss John Still keen to avoid a whack from new captain George Elokobi!

John Still reckons he'd have copped an unfortunate one had he overlooked George Elokobi for the Maidstone captaincy.

Ex-Wolves star Elokobi has been appointed United's new skipper following his summer move from Aldershot.

The former Premier League defender was the obvious choice for the armband and head of football Still wasn't about to disappoint the 33-year-old.

Still, who has made goalkeeper Jake Cole his vice-captain, said: "If George hadn't been captain I think he'd have hit me!

"He wants to be captain and he's captain material, without a shadow of a doubt.

"Coley will be our vice-captain.

"He's a cool head, I've known him for years, he's an experienced player, he's a knowledgeable player and I knew within two or three training sessions that our players respected Coley.

"They're both great lads."

Maidstone lost 3-0 at Dover in their latest pre-season friendly last night.
