Porter:"Made Up To Re-Sign Because I've Enjoyed My Time Here"

25 May 2021

Chris Porter did not hesitate in agreeing a 12 month extension to his time at Crewe Alexandra. The 37-year-old penned a new deal yesterday to take him into his 5th campaign with the club and the Wigan-born forward says that he was ‘made up’ to get everything finalised so early in the summer.

Porter, who hit seven goals in what was a ‘frustrating season’ for him on a personal level told the club’s official website: “I am made up to sign again for what is now my longest serving club in my career.

“I have enjoyed my time here at Crewe and long may that continue. I have a young family now and it was important to remain in the North West and be close to them. I didn’t want to be away from the family and that played a part but like I’ve said, I have enjoyed it here and want to continue to do so.

“On a personal level, last season was a bit frustrating. I got injured before the season started and missed the first 15 or so games and then when I came back, it was a bit in-and-out for me.

“On a team level it was a really solid start to being back in League One. To finish 12th was a good return but we know it could have been better. The manager told us on numerous occasions that we should have held on for a victory or a point and I think everyone knows we dropped points we shouldn’t have.”

“It was a solid start but I didn’t think it was too much of a surprise  with the players we have and had. You could see that they were very good and that the likes of Pez and Pixie were destined for better things.”
