Mauri says the pair are leading by example at Finch Farm.
He said: “Leighton and Seamus are always among the best players in training.
“Every day they want to show the young players how you have to be professional and competitive to play for this club.
“They make your job easier and we are very happy to have them.
“When a teammate says something to you, it is sometimes more effective than if a member of staff or the manager says it to you.
“It is not easy for the boss or the staff because you don't want to be too aggressive.
“When a team-mate or the captain or a player with a lot of experience says something, it is easier to accept.
“It is very important to have leaders who make your job easier."
