Connor O’Riordan has joined Raith Rovers on loan.
The homegrown defender has signed for the Scottish Championship club on a deal until January.
The 18-year-old, who joined the Alex as a Pre-Academy player, will go straight into Ian Murray’s squad for the visit of Dundee on Saturday.
The plan is for Connor, who is from Crewe, to gain more valuable experience of competitive men’s football to add to the 13 appearances he made for The Railwaymen last term.
The 6ft 4ins centre-half’s progress will be monitored by Alex coaching staff, who see this switch as part of his development towards becoming a first-team regular at Mornflake Stadium.
Everybody at Crewe Alexandra would like to wish Connor all the very best during his loan at Raith.
