Boro youngster aiming to make his mark again during second loan spell
Stephen Walker has described returning to Crewe as like coming back to his ‘second home’. The popular forward from Middlesbrough has returned to South Cheshire for a second loan spell after playing his part in our promotion winning campaign last time out.
The 20-year-old has previously spent time out on loan at League One side MK Dons but he jumped at the chance to return to the Alexandra Stadium during the January transfer window.
The England Youth international, who has come off the bench in our last two fixtures against AFC Wimbledon and Gillingham told us: “I am just delighted to be back. The lads are class and everyone made me feel welcome as soon as I came back.
“It is no problem settling back into things. It always feels like a second home here at Crewe. I think that is important. When you feel at ease and you are comfortable in your surroundings then that only helps with your football.
“I think when you have that and have faith in your own ability out on the pitch then it all comes together.
“I spoke to the gaffer at Boro and we spoke about me playing more and getting more minutes under the belt, so I am ready again for next year.
Stephen added: “I knew that Crewe would be the perfect option because of the good football they play and if I can help the lads push on and compete at the top end of the table then I would have done my job.”
