Crewe Alexandra defender Billy Sass-Davies has joined National League side Altrincham on a month-long loan, his second loan with the club after a short spell with them in March last year. He is eligible to play in their game at Wealdstone later today.
Sass-Davies, 20, has come through the Alex academy set-up, making his debut as a 16-year-old against Newcastle United’s Under-21s in the EFL Trophy and has gone on to make 5 appearances for the first team but has gained a little first-team experience in non-league, spending time at Colwyn Bay, Leek Town, FC United of Manchester, Alty, AFC Telford United and Ashton United in the last few years.
He joins fellow current Alex youngster Joe Robbins at the club and is also joined by fellow Academy Alumni Toby Mullarkey, Ritchie Sutton and Andy White at Moss Lane.
What are Alty getting from the signing?
He’s a tall centre-back who is good on the ball (and is someone who could make a decent ball-playing defender in the future) and is a player who has gone from being on the outside looking in to now being the 4th choice centre-back who needs to play some first-team football, either with the Alex or out on loan.
