Legzdins To Be Offered New Deal

Legzdins To Be Offered New Deal

Goalkeeper Adam Legzdins is to be offered a new deal at Gresty Road as his current deal reaches an end.

The former Birmingham trainee has been overlooked for much of the season, playing second fiddle to a host of keepers including loanees David Button and Steve Phillips.

But despite making just eight appearances for the first team this season, including the last three games of the season, he has impressed nonetheless.

A record of eight conceded in eight games (four of those in one game at home to Stockport) is a fairly impressive record for a Crewe keeper, who has the disadvantage of playing behind some real donkeys.

Recent performances now mean Lego will almost certainly be offered new terms this summer although it's far from a done deal. With Steve Phillips also ready to sign a two year contract at Gresty Road, Legzdins may well be signing up to sit on the bench.

Whether the 23 year old will decide on first team football at a, possibly, a lower level over the blue seats at Gresty Road is the big question. It's hard to rule either out.

Meanwhile young defender Harry Davis has been offered professional terms. The son of assistant manager Steve Davis, he is the only second year scholar to have made the step up into the professional game at Reaseheath.

It means eight academy youngsters will now be departing this summer, including goalkeeper Daniel Platt, defender Cheyenne Dunkley and midfielder Chris Rowntree.

They of course join first teamers Danny O'Donnell and Steven Schumacher, both of whom were told they would not be offered new contracts this summer.
