Crewe have completed the signing of Scott McManus, a former Manchester United youngster who has just had a trial at Championship side Nottingham Forest.

McManus was only semi-pro before signing at Gresty Road, and operates on the left side of the defence.

The young defender says he is a player that likes to push forward up the wing and create chances for the team and considers himself a good athlete.

Scott McManus started out at Manchester United as a youngster but dropped out of the game after being released. He was then spotted around 6 weeks ago by Curzon Ashton and has since had a trial at Nottingham Forest.

At 19 Scott still has a lot to learn and will take a while before he`s ready to push Billy Jones for a spot in the team, but has 2 years to prove his worth.

Has Holland broken the rule about not signing anybody who is not going to come in and improve the defence immediately?

  • Scott Mcmanus has the mind and the talent to boost any club. Natural born athlete worth any coach’s attention.

    Nurture this guy as a footballer and an athlete, and he will be a real asset to the club he plays for.

    Any doubts of fiddling with defence? don’t be daft.. 3 words: pragmatic; youth; talent.
