Crewe Alexandra have announced that young defender Billy Sass-Davies has joined Altrincham on loan until the end of the season, making his debut as a second-half substitute in their 1-0 victory at York City.
Sass-Davies, 19, has spent the last 6 weeks on loan at Alty’s fellow National League North side FC United of Manchester and has also spent time over the past year at Colwyn Bay and Leek Town, scoring his first senior goal for the latter. He also made his first team debut last season against Newcastle United’s Under-21 team in the EFL Trophy having been on the bench for the first 5 games of the season.
He has been capped 3 times by Wales at Under-19 level, all of which came last season.
What should Alty expect from their new signing?
Billy is a young central defender who will benefit from playing under Phil Parkinson alongside the experience of Ben Harrison and Andy White, the latter of which came through the Alex academy.
