Ellington Training With Crewe
Friday, 8th Feb 2013 11:52
Former Blue Nathan Ellington is training with League One Crewe Alexandra having had his contract with Town settled by mutual consent at the end of last month. The former Wigan, West Brom and Watford man made only three starts – just one in the league – and 16 sub appearances during 18 months at Portman Road.
Crewe manager Steve Davis told Thisisstaffordshire.co.uk that the 31-year-old is being given the chance to prove himself: "Nathan lives in Manchester and he's coming down to work with us to get himself fit and going.
"He's a free agent so we will have a look at that situation. He's played at the top level and he's been a thorn in many defences' sides.
"If we can improve the team we will do it. A lot of players don't peak until their 30s, I was playing my best football at 32. We've not promised him anything, just get in the place to train and we will see how it goes."

Season Preview by tractordownsouth
Just like every season, we made our pre-season predictions last summer and just like every season we were wrong. Giants fell, minnows prospered and ten managers were axed, the pressure of returning their club to the financial utopia of the Premier League so great that the board of directors were ruthless and often reckless.
A Lack of Spending Will Curtail Progress by Nuggets
At a time when Fulham have just spent £11m on a striker with no Premiership experience, it's a little disconcerting to see Mick McCarthy announce that the club are relying on freebies and borrowed players once again this term.
Where Do Mick's Intentions Lay? by Mullet
The transfer window is barely open and the club isn't so much gently sucking in the fresh air of inevitable squad change, but blowing out the cobwebs with gusts of activity.
At All Costs? by RaymondovicBlue
OK, so Luis Suarez is an amazing football player. But for his return to fitness and brilliance we might still be in the World Cup! ('might' is a big word).
