TALENTED young keeper Tom Booth has been recalled from his loan at Nantwich Town by his club Crewe Alexandra.
The news came just days after the Dabbers announced that Booth’s loan deal had been extended until the end of the season.
The 18-year-old joined Town in mid-October and his performances, including a double penalty save at Tranmere in the Cheshire Senior Cup, have won him widespread praise.
In a statement announcing his return to his EFL parent club Nantwich said: “Tom has left a big impression on the club in his 13 appearances, with a string of outstanding performances combined with a great personality.
“Everyone at the Dabbers thanks Tom for his efforts and wishes him the very best back at Crewe.”
Town have moved quicky to sign goalkeeper Tom Scott on a one-month loan from FC Halifax Town.
The former Manchester City youth and Port Vale player, described as a “really exciting young keeper” by Halifax manager Pete Wild has gone straight into the Town squad.
He joins loan signings Aidan Roxburgh and Ryan Morton who have arrived at the club from National League Altrincham in deals that will run until March 2.
Forward Morton, 20, was the first player from Alty’s academy to play for their first team when he made his debut in May, after coming up through their youth ranks. He has spent the first part of this season on loan at Trafford, scoring four times in 21 appearances in all competitions.
Defender Roxburgh, 23, was signed from Trafford in the summer of last year as an attack-minded right back and has been described by Altrincham manager Phil Parkinson as “a little diamond”. He recently returned from a loan at Ashton United.
Adam Dawson has also arrived at Nantwich a permanent signing from Hyde United. The 30-year-old winger has played 26 times for Hyde this season, scoring twice, including the winning goal against the Dabbers in September.
Recent years have also seen him appear for Bamber Bridge, Radcliffe and Chester alongside a short spell in the Cyprus Second Division. He has also played EFL football for Accrington and Notts County.
Head coach Gary Taylor-Fletcher told the club’s official website: “With what we’ve been building, we decided to push the boat out for Adam because we know he’s the type of quality player that we needed.
“He’s skilful and we’re hoping he can give us a little bit more quality with that final ball making assists and bringing some goals. We’re not sharing goals around enough.
“Our defence is the fourth best in the league but on goals scored we’re the second lowest so that’s something we’re looking to rectify.”
