The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO - By Sam Hawthorn

CREWE goal­keeper Ben Garratt be­lieves the time is right to com­mit his fu­ture to the club, af­ter de­lay­ing on a deal he was of­fered in the mid­dle of last year.

Now the Rail­way­men have steered clear of safety, the home-grown tal­ent has pledged his fu­ture to the club un­til 2019.

“It’s been on the ta­ble for a while, but I was al­ways go­ing to be here for this year any­way,” said Garratt, 22.

“I’m very happy to have signed and se­cured my fu­ture. It’s a big com­pli­ment – you can’t take th­ese things for granted.

“It means a lot. This is my club – the club I’ve been at since I was six or seven. To have played so many games al­ready (he’s made more than 150 ap­pear­ances), I’m over the moon with that.

“It’s an achieve­ment and hope­fully now we can all push on to­gether.

“The plan now is for me to stay in the team, keep play­ing well, build and im­prove as a player and hope­fully im­prove the team as well. I want to keep go­ing.”

STAY­ING: Ben Garratt
