Crewe Alexandra have a prestigious history when it comes to bringing through young players, with the likes of Danny Murphy, Dean Ashton and David Vaughan coming through their academy in recent years. Latest off the production line is Nick Powell, a 17 year old lad who you’ll certainly be hearing plenty about in the future.
Powell made his debut as a 16 year old in 2010, and has been impressing the Alex fans ever since. The young Attacking Midfielder has found the net on several occasions this season as well as thrilling the fans with his attacking flair. Nick recently won the Football League’s “Young Player of the Month” award, and has been linked with a move to Arsenal.
The Crewe youngster has already represented England at Under 16 and under 17 levels, scoring 8 goals for the under 17s.
Make no mistake, Nick Powell is a name to remember. A move to one of the big boys could well be on the cards in the close season, with a good few pounds swapping hands too.
Nick Powell, The North Stand salutes you!
