Wilson: "Crewe Is Right For Me"

27 August 2015

On-loan Liverpool starlet Harry Wilson talks to Crewe Alex PlayerHD

The on loan Harry Wilson believes it is the right time for him to enhance his development with competitive matches. The Liverpool forward, 18, has signed a six-month loan deal with the club and is hoping to be involved against Wigan Athletic at the weekend.

The highly-rated Wilson was a regular goal scorer for Neil Critchley’s Liverpool U-18s before making a successful step up to the Under-21 development group and his versatility allows him to play on either wing or through the middle.

The Wrexham-born Wilson remains the youngest ever player to represent Wales after surpassing Gareth Bale’s previous record at 16 years and 207 days. Wilson came on for the final few minutes of Wales’ crucial World Cup qualifier away in Belgium back in October 2013.

Harry exclusively told Crewe Alex PlayerHD: “Coming to Crewe is a great opportunity for me to play competitive football in the League. I am really looking forward to it and hopefully I will be involved somewhere against Wigan on Saturday.

“Liverpool have taught me everything I know about football and to play Under-18 and Under-21 football is great but I know I will gain great experience from playing in League One against men.

“I know that Crewe want to play football the right way and that is one of the reason’s I chose to come here. They try and get the ball down and play and that suits my style. I didn’t want to go to a club that looked to play longer and hit the front.

“I have met the other lads and they have made me feel really welcome. I know Callum (Saunders) from the Wales set-up and a couple of the other lads, so it is good to see some familiar faces when you walk into the dressing room for the first time. It was fine and I know I’ve chosen the right club in Crewe.

“I just cannot wait to get started and hopefully I can play well and help the team.”
