Morris: "The League Does Look Stronger"

10 July 2019

Alex Morris believes that EFL League Two will be a stronger league this time around. The club’s first team coach feels that the four clubs coming down from League One and the two clubs being promoted from the National League will only add further competition but he believes Crewe Alexandra are more than capable of being involved in the shake-up.

The first-team coach told “You can never say until you see how it has panned out after about 10 games, but I would say that the league looks stronger this time around with the clubs coming down and the ones coming up.

“There are some big clubs coming down into the division, like your Bradfords and Plymouths and Salford have come up and will look to go again. They will have big budgets and will looking for promotion. Orient are a big club with a long tradition. They are probably a League One club when you consider the resources they have.

“Then you have those clubs who just missed out on promotion like your Forest Green and Mansfield and they will want to be right up there again.

“It is tough but a challenge that we have to rise to. We have the tool ourselves with the players we have here to have a good season. If those young players we have can push on again, then there is no reason why we cannot be aiming higher than where we finished last season.

“We have to try and make that transition from 12th to 7th if we can and we can only do that with consistent performances.”
