Summer signing Gary Doherty has been named as captain by Wycombe Wanderers.

The 32-year-old former Republic of Ireland international defender joined the Chairboys from Charlton Athletic after a 13-match loan spell at Adams Park last season.

Midfielder Matt Bloomfield, who has made 286 appearances in eight seasons for the club, will be vice-captain.
