Former Academy graduate to look to resurrect his career at Cheltenham.
The former Crewe Alexandra Academy graduate Billy Waters says he is looking forward to the challenge of trying to make Cheltenham Town a Football League club again. The club, who Crewe defeated in the 2012 League Two Play Off final at Wembley slipped out of League Two last season along with Tranmere Rovers and new signing Waters is determined to make an impact at Whaddon Road.
Waters, 20, who signed a one-year deal with Cheltenham following his release from Crewe this summer said: “The manager and the staff really sold the club to me and I am hoping that I can score and create goals to help the club back up.
“I have bought into it and I am up for the challenge. The manager has given me the opportunity and it is up me now to do the rest.
“I know I have to come down to Cheltenham and fight for my place and get into the team.”
“Crewe is renowned for producing young players and there is no better place to progress as a player. You develop technically from a young age and they have you doing all sorts to improve your technique and try you in different positions.
“They have produced many great players and some of my friends and gone on to bigger and better things. You learn a lot from them and from being coached there. Although I have gone down two divisions I hope I can go on and achieve what some of my former Crewe team-mates have done. It is all about having that passion and application and I am young enough to do that.”
Everyone at Crewe wishes Billy well at his new club.
