Dario is to receive the ‘Contribution to League Football Award’ at tonight’s Football League Awards.

Said to be the ‘centre piece award’ at tonight’s show, Dario will be honoured with the award by Football League Chairman Greg Clarke.

There’s no need to go into great depth over Dario’s achievements at Gresty Road. In 28 years he has transformed the club to what it is today.

We’ve seen the ground transform, the club build training facilities matching those in the Championship if not some of the Premiership, an academy that has provided us and English football with some first class talent whilst also rising to spend 9 years in the second flight of English football.

Whilst recent years have not quite matched the first 20 of Dario’s reign, there’s no questioning that he’s a legend of not only Crewe Alexandra but English football.
