Gary Cahill is honoured to have been named England vice-captain by Roy Hodgson as the Chelsea defender eyes another strong season which he hopes will culminate in silverware.
The 28-year-old who is originally from Dronfield, has been rewarded for his consistency for club and country by being formally named Rooney's deputy and received the armband when the Manchester United forward was substituted in England's recent wins over Norway and Switzerland.
It's an ambition, but more of a dream, to captain your country. It's still an amazing feeling every time you put on an England shirt to go out to play. In the next few years, whether Wayne's rested or injured, there might be an opportunity to captain the team. To know that is unbelievable. To have (the armband) for the short period of time in both games felt really good. It's something I'm really proud of and I'll relish.

These animals were made by schoolchildren for the Bakewell Show. "Woolamina" won gold. No fake animals were harmed in the making of this photo!
Man and beast have been waking up to the start of the Bakewell show, including some very cute dozy donkeys. See some of the highlights so far, as final preparations were made this morning for when the gates were opened.
This year's Bakewell show gets underway today with livestock shows, family entertainment and even a motorcycle stunt display team.
