Yesterday evening, Dunfermline Athletic revealed the new home kit for season 2017/18. A throwback to the Pars kit of the late 1960s, including the 1968 Scottish Cup winning team, the response from fans, including Pars Review, was overwhelmingly positive. It is a classic Dunfermline kit, with candystripes, round neck and a fresh, crisp appearance - a perfect mix of retro, tradition and the present day. One of the images released showed Callum Morris wearing the kit with the captain's armband - a subtle way to announce that Callum will be the new club captain for the forthcoming season.
Callum is now in his second spell with Dunfermline and was in impressive form in the final months of last season, after he returned to East End Park in January. Often looking a class above his opponents in many Championship games, his decision to stay with the Pars after his contract expired was a huge boost. Together with fellow centre-half Lee Ashcroft, Callum will be a key member of the Dunfermline team in the coming months. Goalkeeper Sean Murdoch would also have made a good choice as club captain, but it could be, like many managers, that Allan Johnston prefers an outfield player to wear the armband. In any case, what ultimately matters is that the team contains as many leaders as possible, and players such as Callum, Sean and Lee all fall into that category.
Reaching his peak years (now 27 years old), Callum is an excellent choice as the new club captain to replace previous captains Andy Geggan and Callum Fordyce, both of whom left this summer.
