Parker replaces Shearer as new Toon skipper

Newcastle have appointed midfielder Scott Parker as their new captain following the retirement of Alan Shearer.

Magpies manager Glenn Roeder also revealed goalkeeper Shay Given will be vice-captain at St James' Park.

Roeder told the club's website: 'I had a decision to make about appointing a new skipper after the retirement of Alan Shearer and it's one I gave an awful lot of thought and consideration to.

'In Scott and Shay I found myself fortunate to have two outstanding candidates for a difficult role in replacing a Geordie legend like Alan who was such a magnificent skipper for this club.'

Roeder added: 'It's such a big honour and in Scott and Shay, they have all the qualities I was looking for and there were so many reasons why either could have got the job.

'However, Shay's position as a goalkeeper came into it and obviously Scott as a central midfielder is more in touch with the whole side.'

Parker, the 25-year-old former Chelsea player, will lead his side out for their opening fixture of the new campaign in the Intertoto Cup clash with Norwegians Lillestrom at St James' Park tomorrow evening.

He was out of action because of glandular fever at the end of last season when Shearer's knee injury forced his premature retirement, and Given was asked to take over as skipper for the remaining three games.

Parker joined the Magpies in a £6.5million move from Stamford Bridge last summer and was so impressive that he was touted as a candidate for the holding midfield role in England's midfield for the World Cup finals.

However, Sven-Goran Eriksson had overlooked him even before illness sidelined him.
