Crewe Alexandra take in two Edukick Players
Following on from the showcase event in October, where a variety of professional clubs were represented, Crewe Alexandra showed particular interest in two of our player, Will Brookshaw and Kasper Graff.
Crewe Alexandra are a club steeped in player development. Players who passed through the ranks at Crewe include the England international players Geoff Thomas and David Platt, Welsh international Robbie Savage, and Northern Ireland internationals Neil Lennon and Steve Jones (Platt was the most successful, totalling more than £20 million in transfers and captaining the England team). All these were youngsters signed from other clubs, but Crewe also had considerable success in nurturing their own trainees – most notably full England internationals Rob Jones, Danny Murphy, Seth Johnson and Dean Ashton and Wales international David Vaughan.
Edukicks Will and Kasper were immediately invited into the academy set up to train with the squads. Its a great chance for them to level themselves against some of the best players in the area and see first hand what commitment and dedication it takes to play at that level.
Both boys have worked hard in training and have been a credit to the academy and school.
Kasper is soon to represent Crewe in a competitive fixture for them to assess him in action and look at further talks on his progress.
Well done boys.
