Olly Lancashire was signing number five for Town in the summer of 2017 and perhaps the most important one.

The all-action centre-back arrived at The Energy Check County Ground on a free transfer, putting pen to paper on a two-year contract.

And, after displaying his leadership qualities in full throughout pre-season, the 29-year-old was handed the Captain's Armband prior to the start of the 2017/18 campaign. 

Lancashire began his career with Southampton following a brief stint with Crystal Palace.

After leaving The Saints with thirteen games under his belt, Lancashire joined Walsall on a permanent deal in 2010 following three separate loan spells with Grimsby Town.

A short stint with Aldershot Town followed before he was snapped up by Rochdale in 2013, where he was quickly handed the Captain's Armband.

Lancashire became a key figure at the heart of the defence for Dale and he led them to promotion from League Two in 2013/14. 

And Olly has been as solid as ever for Town this season, putting his body on the line week in and week out with his committed displays making him the first name on the team sheet.
