Contract: Oli Finney Pens New Alex Deal

13 May 2019

Crewe Alexandra midfielder Oliver Finney has signed a new one-year-contract with the Club, with the option of a further year.

The 21-year-old was out of contract at the end of the 2018/19 season but was offered fresh terms by Manager David Artell after breaking into the first team.

Finney ended the campaign with 19 appearances to his name & won the Club's Breakthrough Player of the Season award at the end of season presentation evening.

He made his debut way back in the 2016/17 season, coming on as a substitute in the final day win over Barnet & featured on one occasion again in 2017/18 as a late sub at Carlisle.

During those campaigns however, he did gain further senior experience with loans to Nantwich Town & Halesowen Town before breaking into the first team picture more regularly this past season.

After flourishing with several goals & assists in Alex Morris Under 23 side during the early months of the campaign, Finney was awarded his first start against Manchester City U21's in the Checkatrade Trophy in September & came off the bench in a couple of league games.

His first professional start came in November at Northampton, followed up the the FA Cup defeat to Carlisle a week later. After a brief spell coming out the team, Finney broke back in regularly during the second half of the season & impressed enough to earn his new contract.

Everyone at the Club would like to congratulate Oli on signing his new deal. He becomes the latest player to sign up following the influx of deals tied up last week. Click here for more info.
