Aaron Nell has been named as the new Wildcats captain, and Aldridge is convinced he is the right man for the job.
“Aaron fits the bill and I think he deserves it. I know it won’t affect him or change him.
“He wants the team to do well and thinks very similar to me when we talk about hockey.
“He’s very mature for his age and is also the kind of guy who will confront me if something is wrong.”
Welcome to the Link Centre for tonight's English Premier League match behind Swindon Wildcats and Slough Jets.
Ryan Aldridge is not overly concerned by the fact his side are still searching for their first win of the season, and will continue to push an attacking style.
“In Swindon we've always been in the unlucky situation where we've had to adapt the team to the players and this year we're not doing that,” he said.
“If players can't adapt to the style of play that we want to play, then we'll probably have to find somebody else so we've got the depth to carry on.
“We want to take it to teams, and I think our offence will be able to bring us that, especially if the two new guys (Matias Perkkio and Michal Kapicka) are as good as we think they are.”
