Experienced left back just cannot wait to get going in 'exciting' League One once again.
The club’s new full back, Callum McFadzean, believes that his experience of playing in the EFL will help rub off on the younger ones in the Crewe Alexandra squad.
The 27-year-old started his career at his hometown club, Sheffield United and his career has seen him secure moves to Bury, Plymouth and Sunderland in the EFL.
The left-back, who has also played centrally in his career, says that League One will be just as competitive - but he is not here just to ‘sit back’ and he cannot wait to get going once his match sharpness returns.
McFadzean told the club’s official website: “I will try and help the team in every possible way I can. If that means offering guidance and knowledge to the younger lads then I will. I have no problem with that and I will do it to the senior players as well, if I think they need that.
“That is me as a person and as a player. I am a team player and that is what I’m all about. I will give it everything I possibly can to make the team better.
“It is an exciting league. League One is tough and there are some really big clubs in it but I haven’t come to Crewe just to sit back and see what happens. I have come here to kick on my career and I will be pushing to finish as high as we possibly can. That is the aim and it’s exciting.
He added: “Crewe did well last season and had an outside chance of the play-offs. It is a great club with a great history and there is no reason why we cannot all have an exciting season and be challenging again.”
