KEWELL ‘SHOULD TAKE THE CREDIT’
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.”
