LOAN WATCH | Tom Crawford – Runcorn Town

    Tom Crawford has joined NWCFL table toppers Runcorn Town on a 28 day loan initially.

    Crawford played a part in the 4-1 away win at Barnton on Saturday, playing 90 minutes and assisting in one of the goals.

    Assistant Manager Ross Thorpe said: “Since coming to the club, we have had a really good look at the younger players in the group and can see a real future for them at the club.

    “It is imperative that alongside training with the first team each day that they are getting competitive minutes and going into Non-League will not only give them competitive minutes but also getting used to a schedule of Saturday, Tuesday, Saturday games with three points the focus.

    “There is no questioning the talent currently at the club in the youth ranks, which is a fantastic credit to Calum McIntyre and the staff and partners involved at the club and we see this as a real positive step for the younger lads to go out and get competitive football so when they do come back from their loan spells, they are even further into the gaffers plans.”
