Big future for keeper

<div style='background-color: #FF0000;'><a href='http://www.rsspump.com/?web_widget/rss_ticker/news_widget' title='News Widget'>News Widget</a></div>

Teenage goalkeeper Ben Garratt is perfectly capable of challenging Steve Phillips' regular starting place at Crewe Alexandra - according to the man himself.

"He's got a good chance of being Crewe's keeper for a long, long time" - Steve Phillips
The nineteen-year-old made his senior debut on the final day of last season and maintained a clean-sheet as the Alex's young lions eased past the challenge of Walsall 2-0 at Gresty Road.

"Ben is unrecognisable to the keeper he was a year ago," Phillips told This is Staffordshire. "He has worked tremendously hard on his positioning, kicking and his strength. He's big and tough, not just tall.

"We've not had a keeper come through the ranks here before so it is promising," he continued. "I'm not saying he's going to play for Manchester United, but he's got a good chance of being Crewe's keeper for a long, long time."
