Crewe Hand Trial To Non-League Prospect

Crewe have given a trial to young Chasetown defender Jack Farmer. The 17 year old arrives in the hope of earning a professional deal with the club just a month after signing his first contract with Evo Stik Premier side Chasetown.

Farmer joined Chasetown as a fourteen year old and made his debut for the non-leaguers at 16. He's started the majority of the Scholars games this season, helping them to a current 3rd place in the Evo Stik league.

Chasetown manager Charlie Blakemore said of the youngster:

"Jack is one for the future. He will go to Crewe for a week and see how he fares. Whatever happens, it`ll be great experience.

'He has been ever present this season and has been outstanding. He has a great attitude and I am certain he will progress to play league football.

"There has already been league scouts alerted to the huge potential Jack has. For a 17 year old he has great strength and plays with high energy and his quality on the ball is excellent.'


It continues the Alex's look towards non-league talent. Since Dario returned to the top job a year ago we've seen the likes of Carl Martin, Jordan Connerton, Antoni Sarcevic and Lewis Short all signed up from the depths of non-league. If just one of them turn out to be another Luke Varney then it'll be worth it.
