'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Clearout Begins

Gudjon Thordarson has began to stamp his authority at Crewe as he releases 5.

Injury prone defender Chris McCready has left Crewe for the second time. McCready made 173 appearances for Crewe during his two spells, however long term injuries have prevented him from impressing Thordarson.

The suprise casualty is that of midfielder Mark Carrington. Carrington made 9 appearances under Thordarson, scoring 2 goals.Carrington had his season cut short by injury however and it'll be a dissapointment to him he's left after he began to establish himself this season.

Goalkeeper Stuart Tomlinson is another whose time at Gresty road is over. Tommo was brought into the side by Dario Gradi during his caretaker role and impressed, however a series of mistakes, in particular those away at Millwall in the F.A.Cup cost him his place. Tomlinson failed to establish himself during his time at Gresty road as he was continuously overlooked for the number 1 jersey, as he was this season, when John Ruddy came in on loanafter Tomlinsons poor displays.

The two other players leaving are youngsters Josh Thompson and Luke Danville. Thordarson tole the offical website, crewealex.net he wants a 'stronger, smaller and more competative squad.'

Gudjon is also set to hold talks with Eugen Bopp, George Abbey, Steven Schumacher and Colin 'Junior' Daniel about their futures at the club in the next few days.

Crewe Vital would like to wish those players leaving the best of luck in the future.

All very fine and well so long as we don't tip the baby out with the bath water! Still I've thought for years that our large and largely unused squad needed to be slimmed down to provide the money to pay the salaries of a more capable set of players. Alas I don't think we will now attract them to a basement league side so too little too late as far as the club is concerned. Bravo GT on doing what needs to be done. Of course we are sadly lacking in feee scoring forwards and ar stuck with the Holland legacy in that department for the next couple of years.
