    Yippee! 'Up the Alex'!

    Post by SlakeMoth on Mon May 28, 2012 4:57 pm

    Crewe Alexander got promoted to the first division yesterday by beating Cheltenham Town 2-0 in the playoff.

    For all of you that are saying 'eh, what is that mad woman on about?' here's the xplanation.

    Crewe Alexander or Crewe Alex is the name of a football (soccer) team from Crewe, Cheshire, England. My dad used to play for them during the war (he was in a reserved occupation, so wasn't sent off to fight). Although I don't live in Cheshire anymore, I still regard them as my home team, hence my elation. Altogether now 'Up the Alex'!!! Next stop Premier League!

    Congrats. I am sure that, despite the bracket, people will think about heavy gear and kick posts.

    Congrats, BTW.

    You support crewe? heh, I was hoping Cheltenham would win seeing as their manager Mark Yates used to manage Kidderminster harriers (I live near there), but ah well well done to you silly

    So you're from the Worcestershire area Serious. Lovely county and great sauce! It's not well done to me though 'cos I wasn't playing, although I did play football in my youth for a womens' side called Fodens' Ladies which was managed by my dad. I was goalkeeper for a while. Goalkeeper! I'm 5ft 1" tall in my stockinged feet and I was goalkeeper. It was a laugh at first but then it started to get serious (sorry) and winning became more important and I wasn't good enough to be honest. It was fun while it lasted though. Sorry for rambling on.
