Having been a major part of Crewe Alexandra since the age of just 9, the Runcorn-born Kenny Lunt hurts more than most to see ‘his club’ at the bottom of the League One table.
The club’s assistant manager, who recently celebrated his 42nd birthday on the same day we recorded only our second league win of the season against Gillingham, says that poor results have ruined a lot of weekends so far this season.
The former midfielder told the club’s official website: “It hurts a lot more as a coach and assistant manager, than it did as a player.
“I have been here on and off since I was 9, so it is definitely ‘my club’ and I can assure everyone that we are working as hard as we can to make sure that the club is a League One club again next season.
“We will all do as well as we can and give it our all and see where that gets us too. We want to push up the league and getting us heading in the right direction again.
“When the gaffer took over it was tough. We were 17th, 18th or whatever it was in League Two and we have to use that experience and what we learned from that and use it to help turn this current situation around.
“If the fans feel bad on a Saturday or a Tuesday night when we have lost then I totally understand that. If they think they are bad they should come and see how we feel.”
