Nathan Ellington says Crewe suit his style of play

Ellington has been training with the club in a quest to recapture his fitness and he was certainly caught the eye with four goals in four games for the club’s development squad. Nathan Ellington says he would like to sign for Crewe Alexandra on a permanent contract if manager Steve Davis decides to offer the former Wigan, Watford and Ipswich man a deal.

Ellington, 31, has had to play catch-up with his sharpness after missing the majority of the season following his release from Ipswich. The likeable striker has certainly enjoyed training with Crewe and has praised our facilities and style of play.

Nathan told “I’ve enjoyed it at Crewe and when I first came I was really surprised by the level of play and ability of the young players, considering they only won promotion from League Two last season.

“The style of the play really suits me and I am involved in the games. I’ve really enjoyed it. Chances have come my way and obviously as a forward I have been pleased with my record of four goals in the four games.

“I wanted to come here and play some game and score some goals and I am grateful for Crewe for allowing me to do that. The facilities are first class and the lads have made me very welcome. Although they are young lads, I’m sure some of them knew of me and my career!

“They do things the right way here at Crewe and I feel really comfortable with the environment. The training is really good and it is a really good set-up. You can see how they have been able to produce so many good players.

Nathan added: “It feels right here and I know I can improve and get even fitter. I would like to stay if something can be sorted and it suits both parties. I’ve spoken to the manager and told him how I feel, so I just have to wait and see what happens. “
