Tom Lowery, 24, has thanked the club’s fans for ‘their incredible support’ during his 15 years with the club. The talented midfielder progressed through the Academy to become a stalwart in the middle of the park for three different managers and has amassed 174 appearances.
He marked his 150th League appearance with that stunning equaliser against Ipswich Town on Saturday to take his personal tally to 13 goals.
Lowery ended a difficult season both personally and collectively by winning the club’s prestigious Players’ Player of the Year award and if the Lincoln City game is to be his last for the club, then he will certainly go with everyone’s best wishes.
Lowery told the club’s official website: “The goal meant a lot to me. It was the last home game in front of the fans and if it was my final home game for the club then it was a good way to finish but also a sad day.
“I have been here since the age of 9 and this club is a massive part of my life. I made my debut at 18 and although it has been difficult this season because I don’t think anyone could imagine what has happened, I’ve loved every minute of playing for Crewe.
“I am not sure what is going happen. You never know in football, so all I can do is see what happens, but I do know that will be difficult to walk away from Crewe. I have known a lot of players, the coaches and the staff since a really young age and it will be sad to leave but it is what it is and that’s football I suppose.
“I must say thank to the supporters. They have been brilliant with me, ever since I made my debut at 18. They have supported me through everything. I am sure there were different opinions about the situation earlier in the season but they stuck with me and they have been absolutely brilliant with the team this season.
He added: “They have supported us and have not turned against us through everything and I can only thank them for that and for the way they have supported me throughout my career.”
