Boss says youngsters hunger to play competitive games will be asset
Steve Davis has been impressed with Cameron Park’s real desire to get out on loan and play some games. With a growing injury list hitting eight in the treatment room this week, the Crewe boss moved quickly to sign the left-winger from Middlesborough on emergency loan.
The Under-21 Scotland International is in contention to start against Swindon tomorrow and Davis admits he likes to sign hungry young players with a point to prove.
On signing Park, Steve told crewealex.net: “Our chief scout Chris Johnson has seen Cameron on a number of occasions and he comes highly recommended. We have also seen him play for Middlesborough’s Under-21s and he is a very technical winger who can play on both sides.
“Cameron has two good feet and is good in a dead ball situation which will also help us. He glides past players and is clever in possession. He likes to play those give and goes and uses his left foot to pick players out. He is accurate with his deliveries.
“We have a number of forward players out, so having Cameron here gives us another option. He has a lot of ability and was keen to come out and play some games. He was pushing it as much as us, because he wanted some competitive football and we are delighted to have signed him.
“I like those young players, who are hungry to play and eager to show what they can do. We have had that with Chuks and Brad, so this could be another one.”
