Crewe Alexandra’s assistant manager Kenny Lunt has welcomed the increase in northern based clubs entering League Two for next season. Lunt says it is always nice for fans to travel to more locally based clubs and that we will look forward to trips to newly promoted Macclesfield Town and Tranmere Rovers, as well as demoted Bury and Oldham.
Lunt told the club’s official website: “Some bigger clubs have gone up to League One but there are still some big clubs in this league. It is still a strong and competitive league and has improved over the years. I think it gets harder each year.
“The standard is getting better and it is good to see we have a few more local games as well with the likes of Tranmere and Macclesfield coming up. It is easier for the supporters to travel and generate an atmosphere and having that local rivalry gives the games an extra edge.
“It is something to look forward to and I’m sure the fans will be excited by it.”
