Crewe Alexandra midfielder Chris Atkinson has joined League Two Crawley Town on a one-month loan deal.

Atkinson, 23, has appeared sixteen times for the Railwaymen this term but hasn’t been involved for them since the defeat at Bradford City in the middle of November.

“Chris is a player who’s been on our radar for a while,” manager Mark Yates told Crawley’s official website. “He’s energetic, gets around the pitch well and he’s also composed on the ball. We’re hoping this loan will suit both ourselves and Chris.”

The former Huddersfield Town schemer could make an immediate debut against Notts County this weekend.
