Skipper Luke Murphy said he was delighted at signing a new two-year deal for Crewe Alexandra.

“I am a local lad and Crewe is the team I’ve always played for growing up” – Luke Murphy

The 22-year-old never had any doubt he would extend his stay after recently replacing Ashley Westwood as captain at Gresty Road.

“I am delighted to have signed the contract,” Murphy commented to Crewe’s official website. “I am a local lad and Crewe is the team I’ve always played for growing up.

“It is a pleasure to play here and everyone knows the style of play suits me,” he added. “There was never no doubt in my mind. This is where I want to play and improve and I know I am at the right club to help my development.”

Murphy has been with the club since the age of seven and progressed into their under-18 side by the time he was fifteen before signing his first professional contract in June 2008.
