McCarthy Confirms Crowe Joining Braintree on Loan
Monday, 11th Jan 2016 13:38
Town boss Mick McCarthy has confirmed that keeper Michael Crowe, 20, is joining Vanarama National League side Braintree Town on a month's loan having come to the end of his stint with League Two Stevenage without playing a game.
“When I spoke to [Stevenage manager] Teddy Sheringham, that was the case, he was going there as cover,” he said.
“They had a goalkeeper in there and if he wasn't ripping it up and better than the other keeper that’s unfortunate for him, but that happens.
"Butat Braintree I think they want him to play, which will be better for him.”
London-born, Norway-raised Crowe previously spent time on loan at Woking last season and has been on the Town first-team bench on a number of occasions but without making his Blues debut. He is contracted until the end of the season.

It is a Question of Caring and Camps by TimS
I accept that it is very different following Town away from Suffolk. You do not pick up on the mood on the street in Suffolk and there is something very different thinking about your club through the media whether Town are playing in Suffolk or throughout the UK.

The Nearly Men by ElephantintheRoom
Throughout the Robson years, Town built an enviable reputation for producing homegrown talent. Young players seemed to slip into the first team almost on demand. For over a decade the team prospered with only the occasional ‘missing piece’ sourced from elsewhere.
John O’Rourke – Unsung Hero by ElephantintheRoom
Town supporters of a certain age look back rather fondly at Bill McGarry’s promotion team of 1967/68. We may be grey. But our memories are vivid. That team of half a century ago signalled something of a rebirth and laid firm foundations for the many good times that lay ahead.
