Morris: "I Will Bring My Own Style To It And That Starts Now"

12 April 2022

Alex Morris says it is important that we end this dismal season on an upward curve.

Interim boss Alex Morris had told the club’s official website that he wants to ‘hit the ground running’ with his support staff and would be highly honoured to land the top job on a permanent basis.

Morris, 39, has been placed in charge until the end of the season following the dismissal of David Artell after our relegation to League Two was confirmed with a disappointing 2-0 loss at Doncaster Rovers at the weekend.

Crewe have endured an abysmal run of results and Morris will be aiming to stop that slide on Good Friday with a home game against AFC Wimbledon.

Crewe have now lost eight games on the trot and have also recently surpassed a club record of eight straight home defeats.

Morris is determined to get a response from his players going into the final four games of the season and inject positivity within the club following such a disappointing campaign.

Morris told the club’s official website: “We want to give everyone a lift, the players, the staff and the supporters, who I must say have been incredibly patient this season. To be on the run we have been has not been easy, none more so for the Crewe supporters who are the real custodians of the club.

“I have some ideas to lift the place and hopefully we can get that momentum going the other way and into next season. Momentum is massive in football and it works both ways and we have to stop this slide.

“We have to shift it and that starts now. It starts when I address the players and when we go out to train for the first time. I will come at it from a different angle and have a different style and when a change happens at a football club it can be a catalyst for change and improvement.

“I want to hit the ground running and I know I have a great support staff around me. Lee Bell and Kenny Lunt are great coaches and we all bring different skill-sets to the table, so as a trio I know we can get that response from the players.

“We have a good core of players here and with a bit of guidance, a bit of confidence and support we can turn thing around.

He added: “I’m sure I will have ideas that will work and some ideas that won’t work because they all won’t, but if we can get more right than wrong then I am sure we will get the response we need and we can have a good few weeks before the end of the season.”
