Boss says Toots has emerged as a real leader through adversity
Steve Davis has said that his versatile defender Matt Tootle has been in ‘inspirational form’ of late. The Crewe Alexandra boss has been full of praise for the consistent Tootle, who despite the club struggling for results, has been leading by example.
Tootle has arguably been our most consistent player this season and he had been considered for club captain before the accolade went to midfielder Abdul Osman.
Steve told crewealex.net: “Matt has been inspirational in the last two games and he has been for much of the season. He has shown to the others what they need to aspire to. His efforts have been terrific.
“Yes, he is going to make the odd mistake like everyone else, but his willingness to get forward and put his body on the line for the club and for the cause has been first class. He has been brilliant for us and his performances have been inspirational.”
