Ollie on why he is pleased to be remaining at Crewe
Oliver Turton has told Crewe Alex Player of his delight in committing his immediate future to the club after he penned a new and improved two-year deal. Steve Davis and his staff have re-invested in Turton’s potential and believe that there is more to come from the Altrincham-based midfield player. Turton has had his season disrupted by a knee injury but the 21-year-old is hoping to finish the campaign with a re-appearance in the first-team.
Turton has followed the likes of George Ray, George Cooper, Jon Guthrie by signing a new deal and now he is aiming to push himself back into Steve Davis’ first-team plans.
Ollie told Crewe Alex Player: “I’m pleased to get it done. I’m happy it’s over and done with now and now we’ve got a few games left of the season and hopefully I can get in and play a part in it and then push on for next season.
“It’s a big relief when you sign your contract. You get a bit of security and it’s good that the gaffer has put that trust in you.
“I was always going to stay at the club. I’ve not played enough to be making a move. I want to prove myself here at Crewe. It’s been good to me, so I’m happy to stay here.
“I’ve been injured for a big part of the season and that’s been a bit of a downer to be honest, but I’m back fit now and hopefully I can get involved.
He added: “My main focus now is trying to get into the team, but obviously I’ve also got to think about next year and in pre-season I’m going to try and have to push and get in the starting XI for the start of next season.”
