Manager – David Artell
A solid defender in his playing days, David Artell enjoyed a career spanning almost two decades, most notably with the likes of Mansfield, Chester, Morecambe and Crewe. He became the manager at Crewe Alexandra in January 2017.

Pre-Match View
“I am sure Ryan [Lowe] and Schuy [Steven Schumacher] have got them going again. They have worked with them over the last couple of months and we know they are a good team with good players, but we will be focussing on what we need to do.” David Artell

How to Get There
Sat Nav:
 CW2 6EB
By Road: Crewe Alexandra Football Club can be accessed by two junctions off the M6, but please note that it is easier to get here by leaving at junction 16. 

Exit the M6 and follow signs for Crewe on the A500 and then the A5020, at the roundabout take the 3rd exit and continue to the next roundabout, take the first exit continuing to follow signs for Crewe Town Centre and Crewe Railway Station. 

Pass Crewe Hall on your right, and at the next roundabout continue forward down Weston Road. Away supporters parking can be found on the industrial estate on Weston Road, this is approximately a ten minute walk to the ground. If you continue down to the roundabout this will take you towards the ground, take the first left at the roundabout and continue past the train station. Take the second left down Gresty Road and continue down to the junction and the ground is on your left. 

By Rail: 
Crewe Alexandra is just a five minute walk from Crewe train station, and with great links to the country it's easy to get here. 

Once you arrive at the train station, you can see the ground, turn left out of the main entrance and walk down to the second left, marked with the road sign Gresty Road. Then the ground is just a five minute walk down the road.

Things to do in Crewe
It has to be something related to the railway for a town made famous by the tracks, so check out the Crewe Heritage Centre to explore a fabulous rail museum, packed with old locomotives, model railways and rides.
