The Bloods congratulate David Artell on Managerial position at Crewe Alexander
Droylsden have congratulated Centre half player David Artell after he left the Evo-Stik Northern Premier League to become the new manager of Crewe Alexander.
The Bloods star left the Butcher's Arms on Monday to hopefully succeed at the League Two club.
Gibraltar international Artell, aged 36, scored six goals for Crewe in 82 appearances. The former Port Vale and Northampton defender's final act as a player was to hold aloft the League Two Play-Off Trophy at Wembley in 2012 after skippering the side to promotion before returning to the club in July 2014 as academy operations manager.
Droylsden secretary Bryan Pace stated : "Our centre-half has left us to be first team manager at Crewe, he was the academy manager but after they sacked Steve Davis he was offered the position which is a great opportunity for him. Congratulations to David, his stay at the Bloods was brief and everyone at the club wishes him well."
