Perry Ng is a future captain in the making according to his manager, David Artell. The Liverpool-born defender was handed the armband for Saturday’s home clash with Tranmere Rovers in the absence of his usual defensive partner George Ray and again he led by example.
Although he made an individual error for Tranmere’s equaliser, he was still right up in contention for the Man-of-the-Match award with a top all-round performance. Ng played his part in helping Crewe to their first win in five games against a Tranmere Rovers side who must have aspirations of a play-off spot after winning promotion from the National League last season.
Artell told crewealex.net: “Perry is a captain in the making and he is a leader. No more, no less. He is a leader and he leads by example.
He added: “He has to learn to say the right things at the right times, but that will come with experience. He is a terrific lad and we actually have a few good leaders inside the dressing room.”
