Ada in Team of the Week: Patrick Ada Is Football League's Choice

Dario and David Artell seemed to have a disagreement over his substitution during last weekend`s game against Chesterfield. Captain Artell was disappointed that Dario replaced him with five minutes to go in order to combat the threat of Jack Lester. They talked it over though and it`s actually a bit of a non-story.

Man City right-back Javan Vidal said that he isn`t due to join the Alex on loan. Which is nice, but he was never linked in the first place.

The big news of the week was of course the 822k loss made by the club in the year ending June 2010.

Forum: Should Dario take a pay cut in order to help the finances?

Ten games (ok, nine now!) of the season remain and we sit four points off the play-offs. There are various arguments that we should be currently in that top seven. A poor away record, a poor February, too many draws at the start of the season.... it's hard to say what has cost us the most.

Who Will Crewe Face In 2016/17 (3/5/16)

With less than a handful of games remaining in the 2015/16 campaign, some promotions and relegations in the football pyramid are already known.

Video: Doncaster Rovers (H)

Crewe Alexandra managed to give supporters a long-awaited victory in their final home game of the season against Doncaster Rovers.

Davis happy with finale

Manager Steve Davis was happy and doubtless very relieved to witness Crewe Alexandra complete their home programme with a 3-1 victory against Doncaster Rovers.

Crewe recover for victory

Crewe Alexandra came from behind for a first win in sixteen games and to drag Doncaster Rovers down into League Two with them for next season.

Kick-off was delayed by half-an-hour due to a waterlogged playing surface and Tommy Rowe gave the visitors the lead through a deflected strike.

However, youngster Callum Ainley equalised with his first senior goal before the break and Marcus Haber and substitute Brad Inman added second-half efforts.
