First team coach says more local based games will help fan support the club.
James Collins believes League One has only become stronger with the seven new teams coming into it. The club’s first-team coach says that the likes of Millwall, Wigan, Burton Albion and Shrewsbury will only improve the competition in the third tier of English football and he says it should be an exciting spectacle for Crewe fans when you consider the number of northern clubs now at this level.
Collins told the club’s official web-site: “League One looks like being a really competitive and attractive league again. I think it has only become tougher with the teams coming up and those coming down. We lost some good sides with Bristol City, Preston and MK Dons deservedly going up to the Championship but it is still tough.
“I think it has already been mentioned that there are a number of northern based clubs in League One next season. I think there are only three or four trips down south, so that will help with the travelling for us and the away fans.
“I think the supporters will be looking forward to it and it should help great a good atmosphere at the Stadium with the away fans not having too far to travel either. I think there are some great games coming up for the fans and that is why we worked so hard to stay in this league. “
