Has To Be Right Over Keeper

16 January 2015

Boss wants right character in to challenge Garratt for number one

Steve Davis has told the club’s official web-site that goalkeeper Joe Anyon may need a bit of time to catch up on his fitness after not playing for five months following his release from Shrewsbury Town in the summer.

Anyon has signed non-contract forms with the club as Crewe Alexandra continue to assess him. He has a chance of being named on the substitutes’ bench as Ben Garratt’s understudy at Notts County this weekend and he could well feature in the Cheshire Senior Cup next week as he steps up his return to match fitness.

After allowing Scott Shearer to move out on loan to Burton Albion in search of first-team football, Davis is determined to bring the right man in to challenge and push Garratt for the number one spot and won’t be rushed into any final decision.

Anyon, who previously enjoyed a successful spell with our near neighbours Port Vale, will be given ample time to prove that he could be the ideal candidate going forward.

Steve told the club’s official web-site: “We have signed Joe on non-contract forms so we can have a proper look at him. He is also eligible to play.

“He has missed a lot of football and it is just a question of him being fit enough to throw him in if needed. He may need some time to catch up on his sharpness.

“I have said all along that we need the right one coming in and this gives us a little more time to look at it.

“If it take one game longer to get that right one then so be it.”
