Alex Duo Tipped For The Top

Crewe Alexandra youngsters Ashley Westwood and Luke Murphy have been tipped to have bright futures in the game by new signing Lee Bell.

Speaking to BBC Stoke, Bell who has returned to Gresty Road after a 3 year absence, said:

“Those two are the best midfield players outside of the Championship. Murphy can hopefully come out of his shell a little bit because he could go on and play at the highest level.”

“Westwood is confident in his ability and he should be, because he’s at a good standard.”

The trio are likely to start for the Alex on the opening day of the League Two season against Hereford at the Alexandra Stadium on Saturday.

Westwood, 20, picked up the Player of the Year award in his first full campaign with the first-team, while Murphy, also 20, has impressed the coaching staff with the improvement that he has made during pre-season.

Coach Neil Baker added:

“You hope that they come back ready to go and Murphy fits into that category. He looks as though he’s come back a better player.”

“Westwood had a terrific first year and will only get better, so that’s encouraging. Our midfield will be a strong part of our team.”
