Rory McAllister says his aim is to lift the League Two trophy as Peterhead captain next season.
The striker has been named as the Blue Toon skipper for next term by manager Jim McInally.
McAllister is the longest-serving player at Balmoor having joined the Buchan outfit in the summer of 2011.
As he prepares for his eighth season with Peterhead, the 31-year-old already has his sights set on lifting a trophy as captain.
The aim for the Blue Toon in the new season is to gain promotion into League One.
Last campaign they narrowly missed out twice.
Montrose pipped them to the League Two title by a point and Stenhousemuir edged the play-off final 2-1.
McAllister, who has inherited the armband from David McCracken, hopes there won’t be any hard luck stories next season.
He said: “The manager told me about it last week and I’m privileged to be given it. “I’m hoping I can do well with the captaincy and get us promoted next season.
“The dream is to have lifted the League Two title as captain and then be looking forward to playing League One football this time next year.
“That would be the ideal season for me if we could do that next season.
“I’ve always wanted to be here and I’ve always said I wanted to be here. “So to be handed the captaincy is a huge honour and, hopefully, I can do well for the club and get us a league title.”
McAllister is relishing the chance to lead by example next season and believes being given the captaincy is a sign of his maturity.
In the past, the talismanic attacker has picked up suspensions, but last term he was never sent off.
McAllister added: “I’ve always tried to lead by example because I always want to win.
“People see that in the way I play that I want to do well. “I’ve produced every year on the park in my time with the club so far so hopefully that doesn‘t change next season.
“I want to perform and the aim is to win the league and have a good run in the Scottish Cup as well.
“I think I have matured and eventually the penny drops. “I’m getting a bit older now and I can’t afford to be wasting my games.
“I want to play as much as I can and not waste my time by getting sent off or getting suspensions by picking up stupid bookings.”
McAllister also hopes he will be able to pass on some of his experience to help Peterhead’s young players like Russell McLean, Jason Brown and Jack Leitch.
He said: “I have got experience to pass on to the younger lads. “This is my eighth season at the club and I want to help the younger boys so that they can do well and the team does well.”
