Prior to the 3-1 victory over MK Dons, Bees’ boss Allen had stated that whoever wore the armband in the match would be the new permanent captain, after the recent departure of Charlie MacDonald.
And Weston, who took on the role on a number of occasions last season, told GetWestLondon that he was 'over the moon ' to be chosen.
He said: “I was captain a lot last year, but to be given it permanently this season is brilliant.
“I learnt bits and pieces from Charlie, he was a good leader. But we’ve got six or seven leaders, so I’m learning bits from everyone and I think it will work well. It makes my job ten times easier."
Is Curtis Weston the right man to be Barnet captain?
0+ VOTES SO FAR
Weston’s first game as captain ended in victory at the Hive on Saturday as striker John Akinde scored an impressive first-half hat-trick to beat League One runners-up MK Dons 3-1.
He noted: “He (Akinde) going to be very important for us, like last season. He’s too quick and too strong for any centre-back at the moment so he’s going to be vital for us."
And the former Gillingham man, who was ever-present last season explained how everyone is 'getting up to speed.'
He added: “We’re all good. I think we’re going to do well this season."
