A New Start

Here we are, 13 league games into the season, sitting pretty at the top of the league, playing a style of football we haven’t seen in years and after listening to the travelling support at Carlisle, it’s clear  we’re enjoying the ride.

Dave Artell has the players playing amazing football with a great belief. No more falling behind and knowing we are suffering another defeat, the team dust themselves down and reply with attacking football which our opponents can’t handle and sublime goals to boot (Salford at home was a joy to behold). Local players are still the heartbeat of our club but are being assisted by the experienced players who seem to have given our youngsters this renewed belief.

18 months ago, I was asked what I thought about rekindling a fans representation with a reincarnation of the old Crewe ASI. As a result, The Railwaymen Supporters Group was formed but we were careful to take small steps, with a solid foundation and a goal of bridging the gap between the club and the supporters. Little did I know that this would open up such an exciting opportunity for supporters……….

So, with things looking rosy on the pitch, what better time for there to be good news off the pitch too. John Bowler has talked for years of wanting to get Crewe Alexandra back to be a community club and now the fans can do exactly that. This is the most exciting news for supporters since Norman Rowlinson created a share issue in 1977 to save our club. We, the fans have a chance to have a voice and a piece of our club, opportunities like this come along once in a lifetime so lets dig deep and put our money where our mouth is and become a distinct representation within our club.

A full question and answer session is being held on Friday 18th October at 7.00pm in the Alexandra Suite. Get yourself down for a full brief of how we the supporters can have direct involvement in the football club and help drive the club forward. These are exciting times, don’t miss out on your chance to become a part of it.
