Pen Pic

Steve Holland joined the club in 1993 to coach the academy, or centre of excellence as it was. He had previously been on the playing books of Derby, Bury and Northwich before injury cut short his career at just 23 years old.

Dario Gradi offered him a spot on the coaching staff at Crewe having coached Holland himself during his spell at Derby County.

Holland's rise through the ranks at Crewe was slow but progressive and he soon earnt a good reputation in the game having seen through the likes of Danny Murphy, Seth Johnson and Dean Ashton in the academy.

Within a few years he was given the role of the Academy Director's job and kept that role in 2006 when it was announced he would take an active coaching role within the first team. On April 20th 2007 it was announced that Dario Gradi would step aside as club manager and Steve Holland would slowly take on the role.

After completing his UEFA Pro License course, Holland took to the job as 'first team coach' which seemed to entail everything that you would expect of a manager.

For much of the first half of the 07/08, Holland was closely watched over by Dario Gradi as the two got used to their new roles. Little was heard from Holland in terms of interviews till the second half of the season when he seemed to take much more control of the playing side of the club.
