Carson keeps Baggies armband

The former England keeper is to continue as West Brom captain for their first season back in the English Premier League.

Scott Carson is to continue as West Brom captain for their first season back in the English Premier League. The England keeper was handed the armband 12 months ago in succession to Jonathan Greening after the midfielder's move to Fulham. Meanwhile Bristol Rovers have seen on-loan West Brom goalkeeper Luke Daniels return to The Hawthorns after his season-long deal was cancelled by the Premier League club due to injury problems. Daniels, 22, suffered a back injury during the recent pre-season friendly between the clubs and will be sidelined for two months.
