Shearer Wants First Team Football

4 June 2015

Boss says Scott Shearer has a desire to play rather than

Crewe Alexandra boss Steve Davis says that the club’s experienced goalkeeper Scott Shearer wishes to leave the club to play more regularly. Shearer, 34, was restricted to just three appearances for Crewe before he joined Burton Albion on loan in January until the end of the season.

His opportunities to play were also limited at the Pirelli Stadium, as the Brewers went up as champions of League Two. Shearer only played the final 20 minutes of the season after first choice goalkeeper Joe McLaughlan was red carded at Cambridge United.

Shearer, who also undertook a goalkeeping coaching role at Crewe Alexandra will put his aspirations of becoming a coach on hold to purse his desire to play more first-team football.

Steve told the club’s official web-site: “I had a good chat with Scott and he is free to find another club. We had a good conversation and he wants to play as much as he can.

“He also had a coaching role with the club when he came here and to be fair he did really well with Ben (Garratt), but after being away at Burton for six months, he wants to play and put his coaching on hold.

 “I’m sure he will want to get back to his coaching later on but at this moment in his career he wants to be playing first team football. It is his wish to pursue that and he is free to speak to other clubs.

He added: "If he doesn't find another club then he is still our player. He has a year left on his contract and he will report back like everyone else."
