No Rush In Recruitment

Steve Davis says improvement has to be made in club's summer recruitment

Steve Davis says he will not rush into bringing new players into the club to make sure he attracts the right calibre of player. The boss is the first to admit that some of his summer recruitment didn’t pay off as well as he would have wanted with two of his acquisitions Thierry Audel and Lee Molyneux spending much of the campaign out on loan.

The Alex boss is keen to add quality to his playing squad and knows that our recruitment has to improve on last summer.

Steve told “We have lost the three loan players we had and there a few out of contract and we will do what is right by the club with them. There will be room for two or three who can come in and help us but I won’t be rushed into anything.

“We have to make sure we get the right type of player in. Every signing you ever make as a manger has an element of gamble attached to it. No-one can ever get them all right and some managers have millions to spend.

“What we need to do is make the signings we need and get ones in who will be important for us and make a difference to the team. We know we have a lot of work to do.

“At Crewe there will never be a massive list because there will a number of players who will beyond us because of finances. There will be players we would like but we can’t afford. We know that and accept that.

“What we do offer here is a chance to play and improve as a player. We are a development club and our facilities are first class. Sometimes that is not enough to attract the players we would like as money will play a big part but we are all working hard to get those players in who we think will make a difference.

The boss added: “We have appointed Chris Johnson (Chief Scout) to help with recruitment and he will make recommendations but the final decision will be made by me. Of course, staying in League One has improved our options and we can target a different type of player."
