After months of interest from the Alex, Clayton Donaldson signed a deal with Crewe in 2008 from Hibs for a six figure sum.

Not unknown to the English game Donaldson had spells at Hull, Harrogate, Scarborough and Halifax before making his name with York City in the Conference. 43 goals in two seasons at York earnt him a big time move to Scottish club Hibs in 2007 where he scored five in 11 starts.

A managerial change at Hibs saw his chances limited by 2008 and Steve Holland pounced to sign.

Joining the club in summer 2008 Donaldson made over 30 appearances in his first season, 2008-2009, but failed to back up his goal credentials with a poor return of just 7 goals all season.

Relegation to League Two for the 2009-2010 season allowed Donaldson to find his feet again. Despite breaking a leg early in the season he has returned in good form with 10 goals in 18 starts so far this season (March 2010).

Now one of the first choice strikers he'll be hoping to stay injury free and add to his increasing goal tally for the 10/11 season.
