  • Player profile

    The Devon defender made just one league appearance for Fosse, at Grimsby Town in 1912, and spent just a year at the club after arriving as an amateur from Chelsea, and starting his career with Plymouth Argyle.

    He arrived at the club to turn professional but came at a time when Fosse were unsure of their best back-line. The club used no less than six centre-halves that season, with Crews being one, but he didn't impress in the only game that he managed.

    He moved on to play for Stockport County a year after signing for the Foxes, and finished his career there. He's thought to be the longest-lived of all former Leicester players, passing away just a few months short of his 99th birthday.
