Time To Step Up

Time To Step Up
Owain Fon-Williams
The young 'keeper from Wales signed as a 16 year old 3 years ago, rejecting Liverpool's academy in the process. Williams has been the first choice keeper for the academy teams ever since and has been involved in the Wales U-21 squad, even at the age of 19.

With Stuart Tomlinson out injured at the end of last season, Owain found himself regularly making the bench for the first team but is yet to make a apperance.

With Tomlinson looking at the possibility of a loan deal for next season, William naturally make the progression up to 2nd choice keeper - even though his sub apperances may be limited due to Michael O'Connor being able to deputise in emergencies.

Owain has already said he aims to challenge Ben Williams for the number one shirt and next season could be the chance the big prospect has been waiting for.

James Bailey
Bailey is a two footed midfielder who signed professionally this summer. The highly rated 18 year old will have a fight on his hands to get in to the match day squad with so many midfielders but will be looking to capitalise on reserve games, hoping to catch Holland's eye.

Mark Carrington
Carrington broke into the first team towards the end of last season after signing professionally in 2006. The 19 year old is an attacking midfielder who can also play on the wings when needed.

Despite many midfield signings during the summer, Carrington started against Liverpool at the weekend turning out a respectable performance. Mark will be hoping to build on that during the summer and win himself a spot in the opening day squad against Brighton & Hove Albion.

Byron Moore
Moore was handed a professional contract this summer having impressed for the U-18s. Although not in the immediate plans of Holland, Moore will no doubt see action in the smaller games of the Johnstone Paint Trophy, or should the season run out of steam by April.

Nick Farquharson
Similar to Moore & Bailey, striker Farquharson will be waiting patiently on the side lines for his chance in the first team.

Shaun Miller
Crewe born and bred Miller is without doubt the most exciting prospect of the bunch. A regular scorer at academy level, it was a matter of time before the 19 year old made it into the first team situation.

The nippy striker made his full debut in an Alex shirt in an away trip to Blackpool towards the end of last season, in which he scored a last minute consolation header - a goal the TV cameras missed. The cameras caught his next two though as he finished the season with 3 goals in 5 appearances.

Miller will, without a doubt, be in Steve Holland's thinking for the new season but probably only as a sub, playing understudy to Nicky Maynard. Shaun though will be pushing Nicky all the way and will be looking to add to his scoring tally each time he comes off the bench.
