Finnigan: ‘I love it here and want to help the team’

13 February 2023

Ryan Finnigan is ‘loving’ his time at Crewe Alexandra and firmly focused on helping the team get results between now and the end of the season.

The 18-year-old, on loan from Southampton, was outstanding in his second career start in the 2-2 draw at Crawley on Saturday.

Now the midfielder is hoping for more chances to make an impact, starting with tomorrow’s visit of Hartlepool United (Tuesday, 7.45pm).

Finnigan said: “I love it here, the lads and the gaffer and everyone have been really good to me.

“When I first came here, I was slightly worried because it is men’s football and different to anything I’ve ever known, but I’m loving it.

“Minutes will come, because that’s something I’ve not had, and I want to build on it and keep helping the team.”

Finnigan, who joined in January, says Crewe have to quickly bounce back from the disappointment of Crawley’s last-gasp leveller.

He added: “The first half wasn’t great, but we changed our style and it worked in the second half, and we scored two good goals.

“Conceding in the last minute was a blow but that’s football and we go again. The gaffer has put a lot of emphasis on the next few matches against teams in and around us, and we have to pick up points.”
