Former Liverpool youngster Ryan Crowther has signed for FC Halifax Town. The 25 year-old winger joins the Shaymen following his release from League 2 side Fleetwood Town subject to his paperwork being completed. The tricky wide man played much of his teens in Liverpool’s reserves and was regarded as one of the most exciting young players in the country at the time.
In 2010 Crowther moved to non-league football in search for regular first team football. He had spells at Stalybridge Celtic and Ashton United before earning a move to Hyde, where played a total of 17 games, notching nine goals during his short spell with the Conference National side.
He then moved to Fleetwood at the end of 2011 and has spent three years at the Highbury stadium. The midfielder made 19 appearances, scoring twice but his time at Fleetwood has been fragmented with two loan spells at his former club Hyde.
Crowther had scored four goals already this season, including two goals in League 2 for Fleetwood so hopefully he can bring similar form to the Shay.
He is expected to join James Bolton in the squad for Saturday’s game at Lincoln City.
