Former Crewe Alexandra players Matty Lund and Chris Stokes have moved on Transfer Deadline Day with both players joining clubs that they have played for before.
Lund, a graduate of the Alex Academy system (and a player that is featured in the Academy Alumni updates), has moved from Scunthorpe United back to former club Rochdale and back into League 1 football. He’s signed for the Dale on an 18-month deal with his new club sitting in 18th place, sitting 7 points ahead of Tranmere Rovers in the first relegation place.
Stokes, who played for the Alex on loan from Bolton back in 2010, has joined Forest Green Rovers with a deal until the end of the season from fellow League 2 club Stevenage. He spent 4 years in his first spell at the New Lawn and joins as his new club sits in 9th place, just a single point outside of the playoffs currently. He could feature in FGR’s game at the Alexandra Stadium in March.
