Striker Nevitt becomes first January signing

11 January 2023

Crewe Alexandra have completed the signing of striker Elliott Nevitt for an undisclosed fee from Tranmere Rovers.

The 26-year-old striker has penned an 18-month deal at Mornflake Stadium after completing a medical earlier today.

Nevitt, who scored 14 goals in 53 starts for Rovers, was Player of the Year and Supporters’ Player of the Year at Prenton Park last season, and scooped the Goal of the Season award too.

The hitman has enjoyed a meteoric rise from non-league football in recent times. Having played for the likes of Burscough, AFC Liverpool and Bootle, he blasted a hat-trick at Wembley to help Warrington Rylands win the FA Vase in 2021.

That earned him a 12-month professional deal at Tranmere, which was extended until summer 2023.

Now Nevitt, who scored three goals in two matches against The Railwaymen earlier this term, will go straight into Lee Bell’s squad for Saturday’s trip to Mansfield Town (3pm).

Everybody at Crewe Alexandra would like to welcome Elliott and wish him all the very best during his time at the club.
