Aston Villa named John Terry as new captain

The 36-year-old moved to Aston Villa having ended a 22-year stay at Chelsea at the end of last season, during which time he captained the Blues to five Premier League titles.

Terry takes over the armband from James Chester and led the team out for the first time during this afternoon’s 2-1 pre-season friendly defeat to Shrewsbury Town.

Villa will begin the new Championship season at home to Hull City on August 5.
