Ainley: "I Don't Want The Season To End"

5 May 2021

Back to full fitness and in top form, Callum would like the season to extend further after injury set-back in November.

Callum Ainley scored his first goal for 35 games at Bristol Rovers on Saturday to make sure that Crewe Alexandra ended their away campaign with another win on the road. Crewe deservedly won 1-0 at the Memorial Stadium thanks to Ainley’s first half strike after Owen Dale did fantastically well with the assist.

It has been a tough campaign for the 23-year-old attack minded midfielder after he suffered a severe hamstring tear away at Cheltenham in the FA Cup. Ainley has battled back to finish the season on a high point with his recent performance at Charlton Athletic one of his finest in a Crewe shirt to date.

Ainley told the club’s official website: “To finally score was great because it has been a long time coming. It is certainly something I want to add to my game. I could have had two or three if I am honest with the positions I got myself into it and it is up to me to improve on that and push my game on.

“It was a good win at Bristol, another clean-sheet and another away win.

“Obviously I had my injury and was out for four months and it was tough. No-one wants to be in the treatment room, it has to be the worse place in football.

“It was hard and the first few games back was tough. You can play as many Under-23 games as you want but nothing compares to first-team football and being back out there.

“I am getting fitter and stronger with every game and for me on a personal level, I don’t want the season to end. “
