Boss backing Ben to come back stronger after unfortunate lay-off
Crewe Alexandra boss Steve Davis believes that his young goalkeeper Ben Garratt will come back bigger and stronger following his injury set-back. The former England Youth goalkeeper Garratt has suffered a fractured tibia and he is unlikely to feature again this season.
Davis firmly believes that Garratt’s temperament will see him work tirelessly in the gym to work on his upper body strength.
Steve told the club’s official web-site: “We have had some real bad luck with goalkeepers this season and what has happened to Ben is the worst of the lot. It is another set-back for us to content with. It is a blow for everyone but Ben has the temperament to cope.
“I suffered three pretty serious injuries in my career, so I know how he is feeling. He will be disappointed and frustrated that his season has ended prematurely, when he had been improving.
“Ben has a great strength of character. He works hard every day to try and improve. Fred Barber has come in and works him really hard. He is never the type to moan or complain.
“He gets on with things and isn’t fazed by anything. He knows what we wants to get out of his career and I am sure he will come back bigger and stronger.
The boss said: “He will be able to use these eight weeks to work on his upper body strength. That is a positive to come out of the bad luck he has had.”
