Trialist Defender Hogg To Feature Tonight

Trialist Defender Hogg To Feature Tonight

Crewe have taken former Hibs central defender and captain Chris Hogg on trial after a recommendation by former Bradford manager Colin Todd.

The 26 year old has recently left Inverness after just a few months with the club, despite being offered a new contract Hogg sought an exit.

Having started his career at Ipswich, most of Hogg's career has been spent at SPL side Hibs, where he made over 150 appearances for the club. In his five years at the club he helped Hibs qualify for the Europa League before being named the club's Player of the Year in 2008. He went on to captain Hibs for 2008-2009.

Various shake ups in management in the past few years seemed to harm Hogg's stay and after being dropped from the side last season he left Hibs in January after being released.

Hogg is due to feature for the Alex in tonight's home friendly against the Derby County first team and with last week's trialists, Loick Pires, Jordan Rose, Tom Parkes and Mat Bailey, all sent on their way, Dario could well be expecting Hogg to do the business.

There's certainly plenty of pedigree in him and he's got experience on his side, something the likes of Rose and Parkes couldn't offer. Let's hope he does well, we could certainly do with sorting this new centre back out soon.
