Crewe Alexandra boss Steve Davis hailed his players for what he described as a “fantastic achievement”.

“To get through to Wembley for a second time in just 12 months is a fantastic achievement” – Steve Davis

The Alex survived a real late scare as Coventry City scored twice during injury-time in their Johnstone’s Paint Trophy Northern Area final second-leg at Gresty Road last night – only to still leave the competition 3-2 on aggregate.

As such it will be Crewe proudly taking on Southend United in the final at Wembley on 7th April for what is their second date at the national stadium inside just twelve months.

“To get through to Wembley for a second time in just 12 months is a fantastic achievement and it hasn’t quite sunk in,” a delighted Davis told the Crewe Chronicle. “It doesn’t happen a lot in your career, for some players and managers it never happens, so to get that again is fantastic. It is something for the players, the club and the town to really look forward to in April.”
