Get behind Crewe Alexandra at Wembley!
Cheshire East Council is getting right behind Crewe Alexandra as they bid for promotion at Wembley Stadium next week.
The Alex face Cheltenham Town in the League Two play-off final on Sunday, May 27 after a dramatic semi-final victory over Southend United.
Goals from Crewe-born strikers Ajay Leitch-Smith and Max Clayton secured a 2-2 draw in the second leg of the play-off semi final on Wednesday. With the Railwaymen already being a goal up from the first leg, it was enough to send them through 3-2 on aggregate.
And the Council’s new leader, Councillor Michael Jones, is urging football fans in Cheshire East to make the trip to the home of English football and roar the Alex on to glory.
Councillor Jones said: “This Council is committed to developing civic pride and we are very proud of the efforts of our sportsmen and women in Cheshire East. This includes the players at Crewe Alexandra, who now have the chance to win promotion to League One.
“The team has not lost a game for 18 matches, which is a phenomenal achievement in itself and I hope they can finish what they started by beating Cheltenham at Wembley.
“The club has made a real name for itself over the last few decades for playing football the right way and also giving many people, some who hail from the Cheshire East area, a chance to play in its first team from a very young age.
“We are rightly proud of Crewe Alexandra and I hope they can bring back the glory years for the supporters by moving up the leagues once again.”
Tickets for the final are available from the Alexandra Stadium, Gresty Road, Crewe, Cheshire, CW2 6EB. Visit www.crewealex.net for more details.
