Porter : "Only Good Things To Say"

3 May 2022

Porter says farewell to Crewe after 5 seasons but has no thoughts of retirement.

Chris Porter said his goodbyes to the club and the fans following Saturday’s final game of the season at Lincoln, but the 38-year-old has vowed to carry on playing.

Porter has not been involved in the club’s last three matches as both parties felt it was unfair to risk injury as he searches for a new club. The former Derby and Sheffield United striker has no intention of retiring from the game as he hones in on 200 career goals.

He has scored 54 of those goals in a Crewe Alexandra shirt and has been a superb influence both on and off the pitch.

“This season has not gone according to plan for anyone but the previous ones were really enjoyable and I managed to get some goals and assists and help the team. Obviously I would have liked more but I’ve managed to contribute throughout my time here.

“I thought I would get to 200 goals this season but haven’t quite managed it. It would be a massive personal achievement to reach that number in my career and I won’t stop until I reach it. Hopefully I can get there soon.

“I definitely want to continue playing. I am not hanging up my boots yet.

Chris added: “Where that is I’ve no idea as of yet but I feel fit and know I can do a job for someone.”
