Notts County boss Luke Williams has praised the way summer signing Dan Crowley has ‘adapted’ to life at Meadow Lane.
Notts County swooped to land the midfielder in June to bolster their options in the middle of the park following their promotion from the National League.
Crowley, 26, was released by Morecambe at the end of last season after their relegation from League One but swiftly found himself a new club in the Football League.
Williams has been delighted with his work so far and has said, as per NottinghamshireLive: “Dan has adapted brilliantly, he’s showing that he can score goals and provide them as well while being prepared to put in the hard yards, harass people, make recovery runs and try to put his body on the line.
“I think we’re all pleased with how he has settled in so far and he can actually improve as he goes along and feel more comfortable in the side.”
Positive Notts County impression
Crowley injects useful experience and quality into Notts County’s ranks and if they can keep him injury-free this season, he could play a huge role.
He was on the books at Arsenal as a youngster at Barnsley and Oxford United to gain experience. The former England youth international never made a senior appearance during his time at the Emirates Stadium, despite being a regular for the Gunners at various youth levels.
Crowley moved over to Holland to have spells at Go Ahead Eagles, Willem II and SC Cambuur before heading back to England for stints at Birmingham City, Hull City and Cheltenham Town.
He had a brief stint back at Willem II in February last year before linking up with Morecambe and will be hoping to lay down some roots now at Notts County.
The Magpies have made an impressive start to the campaign and find themselves top of the table after the first six games. They are back in action this weekend with a tricky away trip to MK Dons.
