For Club & Country: Crewe Alex Plant Tree In Remembrance

8 November 2018

Crewe Alexandra have planted a tree as part of the Club's legacy to football & the First World War.

The tree has been planted at the Club's Community Soccer Centre in Shavington & will serve as a token of ongoing remembrance to those who fought & lost their lives so that we might live.

First Team Manager Dave Artell & First Team players James Jones & Dave Richards assisted with the planting process & spoke of their pride in being involved in such a positive project.

Jones said: "We've planted the tree to mark 100 years of remembrance for all those who fell in World War.

"It's a good thing to be a part of & I'm pleased the Club have participated in such a worthwhile project."

Richards said: "It's an honour to help plant this tree & to represent the past players who played for Crewe Alexandra & lost their lives in war.

"It's important that we always respect & remember everyone who gave their lives for us to live today."

The tree has been planted alongside a unique plaque & can be viewed up close & personal by anyone visiting the Soccer Centre.

The Club would like to thank The Woodland Trust for providing the tree & the EFL for supporting such a worthy cause & making the project possible.
