Rochdale have appointed recent signing Peter Cavanagh as the new club captain.

The 30-year-old joined on a one-year deal from Fleetwood Town this summer and knows manager John Coleman well from their time at Accrington Stanley.

He joined Fleetwood after serving an eight-month ban for betting against his own club and won promotion to the Football League with them last year.
