GAR­RATT GRABS HIS CHANCE

LEAGUE ONE

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE ONE -

STEVE Davis says the search for a new goal­keeper has been put on hold at Crewe af­ter teenager Ben Gar­ratt’s string of fine per­for­mances.

Gar­ratt was Davis’s third­choice just months ago but, with in­juries to No 1 Steve Phillips and loa­nee Neil Etheridge, Davis says Gar­ratt has earned his place.

“Ben has made me think and that’s what he is in the team to do,” he said. “Bring­ing in an ex­pe­ri­enced keeper has be­come less nec­es­sary.

“When we have got young play­ers of our own we are al­ways keen to re­ward them and hope they re­alise their po­ten­tial.”
