Crewe Alexandra have confirmed that young midfielder Regan Griffiths has joined Kidsgrove Athletic on loan until March 17th.

Griffiths, 19, has yet to make a first-team appearance for the Alex but has made the bench for the last couple of games against Oldham Athletic and Crawley Town. He has been a regular for Alex Morris’ Under-23s, playing in various positions (see later), but it’s the first time that he has made a loan move to gain some first-team experience.

He could make his debut for the club in their Northern Premier League Division One West (in the 8th tier) game against Glossop North End this afternoon which you can catch-up in Wednesday’s Loan Report.

What are Grove going to get from him?

He’s a typical Alex Academy midfielder in that he’s a short player but can play in multiple positions – whilst he’s naturally a central midfielder, he has also operated for Morris’ Under-23 team on both wings as well as in a False 9 position.
