No Enquiries For Woodards

After his failure to sign a new contract, defender Danny Woodards was last week placed on the transfer list along with fellow rebel Gary Roberts.

Technical Director Dario Gradi explained the situation to 'When a player informs us that he doesn't want to extend his contract then we have to do what is in the best interest of the Football Club.'

Gradi added: 'A club like Crewe cannot afford to take a player like Danny Woodards from non-league, play him in our first team and improve him just for him to walk away for nothing.'

As of yet Gradi admitted there has been no contact over Woodards though: 'If we can we will get some money for him because we invested time and money on him - but I have not had one enquiry for him as yet.'

Midfielder Gary Roberts who was placed on the transfer list at the same time as Woodards has been strongly linked with a move to North-West neighbours Blackpool.

Blackpool manager Simon Grayson has just returned from holiday and is believed to be keen to open talks with Crewe and Roberts about a potential move for him to Bloomfield Road.

Gary Roberts is now being strongly linked with Doncaster Rovers. His he any good?

He's good when he wants to be, would be very average in the Championship however. Crap attitude though which is why very few (if any) Crewe fans would be unhappy to see him go.

gary roberts can be good on a good day but then again he can be a real tit off the pitch as well
