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."

It cannot just be me but we seem to have been here before. A few defeats and we have, perhaps unsurprisingly, been left with a horde of moaning and whinging Ipswich fans.
Marcus Evans and Mr John by HarryfromBath
Watching the shenanigans of yesterday’s transfer deadline day unfold, my mind turned to Mr John and I wondered what he would have made of the carnival.
Success Vs Attendance by WindsorBlue
With the transfer deadline imminent, and not much coming in, and potentially our best player out, we can only sit on the edge of our seats hoping for the best. There is not much we, as supporters, can do to directly impact the day-to-day running of the club.
The Long Ball Hump by Ipswichlove
Does it work? Some say yes. Some say no.Where are you? For one thing though, while Mick McCarthy is in charge of town this will be our way of playing football.
