“Hutch will be selected on merit like everyone else but for now, he will lead the team out on Sunday,” Walmsley said.
A humble Hutchinson is approaching Sunday’s fixture like any other match and is looking forward to getting back to doing what he does best for the Mariners.
“I’m just looking forward to getting back on the field and doing what I’ve done for the Mariners for the past 10 years which is win football games and to be able to lead the team out tomorrow is another positive,” Hutchinson said.
