Michael Higdon has questioned Crewe’s fitness regime after losing a stone at his new club Falkirk.

‘The Don’ made his SPL debut in Scotland yesterday, scoring 2 in his first 30 minutes as Falkirk ran out 4-0 winners at Gretna. Higdon, who spent 12 years at the Alex coming through the academy, says it’s down to Falkirk’s fitness regime – claiming Crewe didn’t take as much notice of his fitness.

He told the Sunday Mail in Scotland: ‘I’m down a stone and there’s still more to come off – around my chin especially!

‘But this tells me that I’ve never really felt fit in my career before now. It’s been a combination of exercise and diet but I now feel more professional about being a player.

‘My previous club didn’t focus on that at all but it’s been good for me.

‘Now I just need to score goals to progress and I’ll be happy with that every week.’

Higdon is set to play against reigning SPL champions Glasgow Celtic next Saturday.

  • lot of players have said that when leaving. andy franks has been allowed more room to work this summer and the players should be a lot fitter, vaughan is one who has benefited from summer of hard graft.

  • The Don has gone but still he gets alot of attention, is it they want him to fail so they can say “told you so”
    I never rated him but wish him all the best.
