Steve Davis wants to bring first cup back to Crewe
Ahead of tomorrow’s Johnstone’s Paint Trophy Final against Southend United, Steve Davis has told us that he is determined to make history for the club by lifting the Football League Trophy for the first time in our history.
Davis and his players deserve a crack at trying to win the trophy for the first time after taking the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy competition seriously throughout the earlier rounds. The Railwaymen had to come through tough assignments to get past Shrewsbury, Doncaster, Bradford and Coventry City to reach their first ever Cup Final at Wembley.
Steve told crewealex.net: “I am delighted to get the opportunity to get to a Cup Final with Crewe. Hopefully, we can go there again and play well. If we can do that and put on a good performance then we have a good chance of bringing the trophy back to Crewe.
“I always like to break records. It shows that you are doing something right. We won the Vase at Nantwich for the first time in their history. We won the Cheshire Senior Cup twice and were promoted twice on the bounce and went close to a third.
“When I came to Crewe, the first objective was to keep the team up. Getting promoted was a bonus. We went on a club record unbeaten run to achieve that and that extended to 20 games.
“Now we have reached a Cup Final and that is the challenge I set the players. I spoke to Dario after we beat Coventry and he said to me ‘blimey I have been trying to get to that final for 20-odd years and you’ve done it in 12 months!
“Dario was very pleased with what we have achieved, as he was last season. He is always very supportive and is Crewe through and through and it will be a very proud day or him and all the Academy staff who have worked hard to see the kids come through. “
