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."

He lives in Manchester?? Surely he would have bought a place in Ipswich if he took us seriously?

Ellington peaked in his early-20s. 10 English league goal in the last 6 years, dear oh dear.

Talking of Crewe; this is slightly unrelated but there is a young lad there; Ryan Colclough who looks to be a really bright prospect; I'd love to see scout there more as Crewe do have a fantastic academy.

All the negative marks must be from Wellington ( sorry that's what he played in ) I ment Ellington .

Good luck to you Nathan, always a good ambassador for the club even though you never got a run in the team. I hope you get some games at Crewe.

A complete waste of space to a point were he is on the verge of being a disgrace to his profession.
The architypal footballer who has thrown it all away.
