Who's Plymouth Argyle's next captain?
ARGYLE will have to appoint a new captain after Simon Walton (pictured right) completed a move to League One outfit Hartlepool United yesterday.
The Pilgrims agreed to release the midfielder, 24, from the remaining 12 months of his contract for 'family reasons'.
It allows him to be closer to his family home in Leeds and also to be nearer to his young daughter.
Walton's departure from Home Park could see former promotion-winning skipper Paul Wotton take over the armband from him – as well as penalty taking duties.

Wotton re-signed for the Pilgrims in January, three-and-a-half years after leaving the club.
Another possibility for the vacancy at captain is experienced centre-back Darren Purse (pictured right).
Walton was in Plymouth on Thursday, but did not take part in Argyle's training session at UCP Marjon, Derriford.
He travelled to the north east of England to complete his move to Hartlepool yesterday.
