Bell Delighted With Early Purchases

9 June 2022

Bell praise for players eagerness to sign and recruitment team's quick processing to make the transfers happen.

Lee Bell believes that the infrastructure implemented in the club’s recruitment department has certainly helped the club moved swiftly in the marker this summer.

The club’s assistant manager is delighted to have added three new faces to the squad already and he is confident that more will follow before the players report back for full-time training on 22nd June.

He has praised the impact new staff members, Glyn Chamberlain and Josh Kennard, have made to identifying targets quickly - but also praised the players for their willingness to sign for Crewe Alexandra.

Crewe have signed defender Kelvin Mellor, midfielder Conor Thomas and forward Courtney Baker-Richardson as boss Alex Morris looks to strength the spine of his new-look Alex side.

Bell told “There has been a lot of work going in behind the scenes and we are pleased that the work we have all put in as a collective has paid off. We have all worked on it and we must also credit the players that have come in. Their willingness to come here has only pushed that along and accelerated the process and we are delighted to have done some of our business as early as we have.

“We knew the areas we wanted to improve and credit must go to the recruitment team for identifying possible targets so quickly. When you can decide that someone is your man then things can happen quickly.

“We identified our man and made it happen and that is credit to everyone involved. Glyn and Josh have had a major impact on that and John Dillon’s input and knowledge of players helps us massively.

“The players have been brilliant too. When both parties want something to happen, it makes it an easier process. There was no dragging it out if you like.

“They all came up, had a look around the place, had a chat with the staff and they got things done fairly quickly and we are delighted with it so far.”
