Crewe Alexandra manager Steve Davis said teenage goalkeeper Ben Garratt should soon be challenging for a senior debut after signing a new two-and-a-half year deal.

"We see him as a somebody who will start to stake a claim for a place" - Steve Davis
The nineteen-year-old hasn't yet made his first-team bow and is currently behind both Steve Phillips and Alan Martin in terms of selection. But Davis believes that is only a matter of time.

"We haven't had a goalkeeper to get excited about for a while," he told BBC Radio Stoke. "We see him as a somebody who, over the next few months or longer, will start to stake a claim for a place. He's improving all the time.

"The work with Steve has helped him, and Alan coming in has given him a more competitive edge," Davis added.
