'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Broomes was 'Disappointed' at 'Pool Return

Marlon Broomes has stated he was 'shocked' that Blackpool recalled him for his loan spell at Crewe, but 'pleased' to be back at Gresty Road just two weeks later.

Reading between the lines, it looks quite clear that the 31-year-old will not have his Bloomfield Road contract renewed in the summer, and he is playing for his footballing future in League One.

'I want to play as many games as possible. I am free agent at the end of the season as I am out of contract and it is vitally important I stay fit and help keep Crewe in this division,' said Broomes, who has become a big hit at Crewe - shoring up an otherwise leaky defence.

On his return to the club for the remainder of the campaign, the former Preston man said 'I am very pleased to be back at Crewe.

'I was disappointed to be called back and it was a shock. But it was understandable because Blackpool are my club and they were short of players.'


He is the first to admit that he needs to be playing first team football at this stage in his career: 'I went almost three years without a game because of injury and I got a taste of it here. I explained to Tony Parkes that I need first team football.'

Crewe now have a fantastic chance of staying in their division, and as they look to build for next season, Broomes finished by stating 'There is still a long way to go, everyone is aware of that. A lot of people had written Crewe off. Many thought they were dead and buried so full credit to the manager and players.

'Now it is up to us to finish the job and I think we can do it.'
