'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Higdon: 'I never felt fit at Crewe'

Michael Higdon has questioned Crewe's fitness regime after losing a stone at his new club Falkirk.

'The Don' made his SPL debut in Scotland yesterday, scoring 2 in his first 30 minutes as Falkirk ran out 4-0 winners at Gretna. Higdon, who spent 12 years at the Alex coming through the academy, says it's down to Falkirk's fitness regime - claiming Crewe didn't take as much notice of his fitness.

He told the Sunday Mail in Scotland: 'I'm down a stone and there's still more to come off - around my chin especially!

'But this tells me that I've never really felt fit in my career before now. It's been a combination of exercise and diet but I now feel more professional about being a player.

'My previous club didn't focus on that at all but it's been good for me.

'Now I just need to score goals to progress and I'll be happy with that every week.'

Higdon is set to play against reigning SPL champions Glasgow Celtic next Saturday.

lot of players have said that when leaving. andy franks has been allowed more room to work this summer and the players should be a lot fitter, vaughan is one who has benefited from summer of hard graft.

The Don has gone but still he gets alot of attention, is it they want him to fail so they can say "told you so" I never rated him but wish him all the best.
