New defender Michael Nottingham is no stranger to Gresty Road after facing the Railwaymen in a pre-season friendly. The Blackpool loanee gave us an insight into what convinced him to join up with the Reds, as they look to continue their impressive start to the season.
Michael added: “I spoke to the Gaffer on the phone first; he told me all the good things about the club. To be honest, it was nothing that I hadn’t already heard from other people. He told me about the lads and what is expected at this football club."
He continued with: “I always keep an eye out for how each league is planning out around me. I’ve seen how tight this league is at the moment, but also how competitive it is.
"A few of my friends have played here before and they’ve mentioned their time here at Crewe. I’m hoping it’s going to be a good season for this club, they are doing well and I want to help towards that.”
If you are wondering what to expect from the 30-year-old, he gave us a brief description.
He said: “I’m energetic and I’m versatile, I can play in a variety of positions, but most of all, I’m a winner. I just want to come and win games of football. I’m very passionate and I only play to win. The fans can expect me to give everything for this club while I am here.”
