The Football League Paper - - CHRIS DUNLAVY - By Paul Ed­di­son

SOME had tipped Craw­ley to fall out of the EFL this sea­son, but Josh Yor­w­erth has hailed the im­pact boss Harry Kewell has made on the squad.

The 23-year-old de­fender has been a reg­u­lar in Kewell’s side through­out the cam­paign and, with the side com­fort­ably clear of relegation, Yor­w­erth is in no doubt as to who is re­spon­si­ble for a fine cam­paign.

He said: “Ev­ery­one has their own ideas, their own style and their own phi­los­o­phy when they come into a club as a man­ager.

“We’ve all bought into what the man­ager wants and how he wants us to play. I feel like we’re all on the same page now, whereas at the start of the sea­son it was a learn­ing process for us all to get on board with the style.

“I feel that we’ve gelled as a squad now and, go­ing for­ward, it can only be pos­i­tive.

“I’ve en­joyed work­ing with him. I feel like he’s given me an op­por­tu­nity to play the way I want to play, to be able to pass the ball.

“He be­lieved in me and it’s given me a lot of con­fi­dence go­ing into next sea­son.

“I also think I’m about 20 per cent fit­ter now than I was at the start of the sea­son.”
