Crewe Alexandra’s most recent acquisition, Tommie Habon, believes that the way the Railwaymen play football will suit his own style, but the 27-year-old says that first and foremost it is his job to help protect our goal.
Hoban has signed for an initial 12 months with an option of a further year and the former Watford man says that he cannot wait to get going in the pre-season friendlies and show people what we can do as a centre-half. He know he faces competition for his place with the likes of Billy Sass-Davies, Donervon Daniels and Luke Offord already here and boss David Artell hinting that he may look to bring in another centre-half yet too as part of his rebuilding programme.
Tommie told the club’s official website: “As a centre-half I like to get the ball down and play but first and foremost I am a defender and it is my job to stop goals.
“That is my number one job and that is the best way I can help the team win games. Sometimes it cannot be pretty and if that means the ball going over the stand or wherever then it will but I like to play football as well and I know the way Crewe play football will suit my style.
“It is a big factor in me signing and I can also play at full-back, so I have that versatility too.
“As a defender I think I sense danger and defend the box well. That is what I hope to bring to the team and hopefully play my part in what everyone hopes will be a successful season.”
