Profile

Crewe Alexandra are currently managed by Steve Davis, and play their football in League Two of the English league ladder. Davis has been in charge since late 2011 and during that time he has led Crewe up to the third-tier (2011/12), before hoisting the Johnstone's Paint Trophy the following year. However, Crewe now play their football in League Two after losing their third-tier status in 2016.

Even though Steve Davis is at the helm at Crewe Alexandra, there is one name that has become synonymous with the club and that is Dario Gradi, who has been a mainstay of their recent history. After joining in the early 1980s, Gradi has prided himself on bringing a terrific youth policy to the club and during his tenure he has seen such stars as David Platt, Robbie Savage and Danny Murphy use the club as a springboard to much greater things,

Gradi continued to achieve and they were a mainstay in divisions one and two with Gradi continuing to blood young players and their sale of Dean Ashton for £3m to Norwich City certainly bolstered the funds.

However, there was to be a new era in 2008 as Dario Gradi decided to take a back seat from the management scene after becoming the longest serving boss in the Englsih game and eventually Gudjon Thordarson was handed the job. With less than a year under his belt Thordarson was relinquished of his duties and Gradi then took over the reins until November 2011.
