TIME FOR WILSON TO COME OF AGE
NEW Crewe signing Harry Wilson has admitted the opportunity to play against men rather than boys was too good to turn down.
The 18-year-old has agreed a six-month loan switch from Liverpool, where he had been a regular goalscorer in the Under-18s and Under-21s development side.
But Wilson, Wales’ youngest ever international when he played against Belgium aged 16, is relishing the cut and thrust of League One.
“Coming to Crewe is a great opportunity for me to play competitive football in the League,” said Wilson.
“Liverpool have taught me everything I know about football and to play Under-18 and Under-21 football is great, but I know I will gain great experience from playing in League One against men.
“I know that Crewe want to play football the right way and that is one of the reasons I chose to come here. They try and get the ball down and play and that suits my style. I didn’t want to go to a club that looked to play longer and hit the front.
“I have met the other lads and they have made me feel really welcome.
“I know Callum Saunders from the Wales set-up and a couple of the other lads, so it is good to see some familiar faces when you walk into the dressing room for the first time.
“It was fine and I know I’ve chosen the right club in Crewe.”
