Two academy graduates have signed professional deals with Crewe today.

Alex Titchiner, a striker, and defender Matt Tootle have both signed one year deals with the club after impressing in the U-18s.

The news comes after it was revealed that two other bright prospects in Matthew Lund and Ben Marshall have turned down contracts with the club. Both Lund and Marshall are now expected to join local rivals Stoke City after they approached former Alex boss Steve Holalnd.
