No Qualms About Playing Dave

19 May 2017

Crewe Alexandra boss David Artell says he would no qualms about giving his reserve goalkeeper Dave Richards his chance if Ben Garratt endures a dip in form.

Artell wants Richards to really push the Crewe number one next season and he has praised Richards’ attitude.

The former Cardiff and Bristol City goalkeeper signed a new deal last week and Artell says he is not after another goalkeeper.

Artell told “Dave knows he has some development to come and he has to become more consistent starting with the U-23s.

“I want him to push Ben close and he can do that by becoming more consistent. He is a good pro and a great trainer. I would have no qualms about playing Dave if Ben has a dip in form or is injured. It would then be up to him to see how he handles it.”
