Friendships Out The Window Once Whistle Goes

17 September 2015

Ryan Colclough says nice to catch-up with ex-team-mates but better to leave with points.

Ryan Colclough says it will be nice to see former team-mates Mark Ellis and Matt Tootle this weekend but he admits that when the first whistle goes, his only focus will be getting the three points for Crewe.

Colclough has known our former captain for many years as he was a role model after progressing through to the Academy to play over 200 matches for the club. Colclough was also a team-mate of Ellis’ over the two-year period he was with the club and they helped the club lift the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy for the first time in our history back in 2013.

Ahead of the trip to the Greenhous Meadow, Ryan told Crewe Alex PlayerHD: “Of course, it is always nice to see old team-mates and I’m sure there will be a chance to catch-up before the game.

“I have known Matt for many years and grown up with him, so it will be good to see him and Mark (Ellis) but like I’ve said it will be a hello and then down to doing our jobs.

“Once that whistle goes it will be a professional game and competitive regardless of who we are up against. We all have a job to do for our team and they will be the same.

Ryan also joked: “I will be on the opposite side to Matt but if he dares to come over on my side, I’m sure I’ve got one or two tricks to get past him.”
