After completing his move to FC Halifax Town yesterday, Ryan Crowther, has admitted he is looking forward to the challenge of helping the Shaymen reach the playoffs. The winger has spent the last three seasons at League 2 side Fleetwood Town, where he made 16 appearances in the football league, scoring twice but the 25 year-old wanted regular first team football
Crowther said: “I’m very happy to join a club like Halifax, a team that is obviously moving in the right direction and that’s something I would like to be a part of. The move should give me a chance to play more first team football which is what I want.
“From now to the end of the season I just want to play as much as possible and help Halifax Town win as many football matches as possible, if we can do that then hopefully we could push into the playoffs.
Town are currently lying 8th, just two points off the playoff places and the midfielder who spent much of his youth in Liverpool’s reserves believes he can help the team climb into a top five spot.
“Hopefully I can bring a bit of creativity to the team and try get amongst the goals. I like to get the ball down and play football so I hope I can provide plenty of chances. The team are in a good position in the league and are not that far off the playoffs so like I say if we can just win as many games as possible we could get there,” said Crowther.
He added: “I’ve played a bit in the football league and I’ve also played in the conference so hopefully that experience will help me and I know what to expect. I am looking forward to getting the ball down and playing some football. Sometimes I feel League 2 is very direct which does not really suit how I like to play. In the Conference there are some teams who play good football so I am looking forward to the challenge and I hope to be able to chip in with a few goals.”
