Nathan Ellington aims to get career back on track
The former Bristol Rovers and Wigan Athletic striker Nathan Ellington scored our second goal in a 3-0 win for our Under-21s against Derby County yesterday and boss Steve Davis will continue to monitor the fitness and form of the 31-year-old. The experienced forward is currently training with us at Reaseheath to improve his fitness levels as he searches for a new club.
Crewe have not ruled out the possibility of offering the former Watford man a deal if he can re-produce his previous form in front of goal and a well-taken goal for the Under-21 side would have done his chances no harm at all.
Manager Steve Davis told crewealex.net: “Nathan phoned us to see if he could come and train and we are giving him that opportunity to work on his fitness and play in some reserve games.
“We are a good club for him to get his career back on track. He has lost his way somewhat over the last couple of years because he has not had many playing opportunities. We certainly won't rush into anything with him.
“If he does well and he wants to be here, and we think he could improve the team, we will see if we can do something. He has to help the younger players with his experience but he is still only 31 and has a lot to offer.
Steve added: “We will see if he has enough drive and determination to keep playing and doing well. I don't think it is about money for him. He hasn't played any games. He just needs a chance.”
