Youngster enjoying life as a professional.
New signing Daniel Udoh says it will take him a bit of time to adjust to the intensity of full-time training but the former Nigerian Youth International is determined to grab his opportunity in the professional game. Udoh, 19, signed on a two-year deal from Ilkeston after some impressive performances in the Northern Premier League and after showing his potential in training with Crewe, he was handed his professional debut as a second half substitute against Bradford City on Easter Monday.
The former Stevenage striker so nearly made it a dream start to his pro career when his first contribution in the game saw him go close with an overhead kick.
Daniel told the club’s official web-site: “The big difference for me so far has been the intensity in the training. There are less mistakes and I’ve found that the higher you go, the less mistakes are made.
“You have to train well every day and do the right things because you get punished at this level. I will make sure I stay focussed and work as hard as I can to improve.
“I was delighted that the manager gave me my chance against Bradford and hopefully there will be a few more for me.
He added: “I am adjusting and getting fitter. It will take a bit of time to reach the level of the other lads here but I am still ready and raring to go if the manager needs me. I want to make the most of the opportunity that Crewe have given me. “
