Jim support for skipper Jason
Jim Magilton has backed Jason De Vos to take over the captain's armband and become an excellent skipper for Town.
Jim will say goodbye to the Club after Sunday's final game of the season at Plymouth with Jason in line to replace the former Northern Ireland international as skipper at Portman Road for next term.
"I have a lot of respect for Jason and if he takes over the captaincy - which looks likely - I know he will go on and prove to be an excellent skipper for this football club," Jim told the Club website.
Jim - backing for Jason
"He has always been vocal and is an outstanding individual who has impressed me since he first arrived at the Club.
"I know he will carry on the fine traditions of Ipswich Town and be an inspirational skipper.
"This is a magnificent football club and being made skipper here is a huge honour. I certainly saw it that way when Joe gave me the job.
"I've had many highs in my seven years at Ipswich Town but being made skipper was the highest. Knowing the manager has put his faith in you to be his spokesperson in the dressing-room was a wonderful feeling."
