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.

My grandma claimed to know nothing about football. "Oh, I'll leave you men to talk about the football", she'd say, but she knew alright. She knew exactly what was going on with the Town.
