Crewe Alexandra last night won the Football League’s ‘Most Admired Club Award’. The South Cheshire outfit beat off competition from Brighton, Ipswich, Norwich, Reading and Southend to land the award. The award comes after a dismal 15 months on the pitch which has seen just six wins since the sale of Dean Ashton. However, Dario Gradi surprisingly missed out on the ‘Contribution to Football Award’ which instead went to Huddersfield’s Academy Director Gerry Murphy, who also beat off competition from Bradford’s David Wetherall.

Other award winners include:

Championship Player of the Year – Phil Jagielka (Sheffield Utd)

League 1 Player of the Year – Lee Trundle (Swansea)

  • being admired does not save you from relegation, mind you neither does having a really good web site!
