NEW PLAYER: Oliver Crowley

Oliver Crowley (23) is a right back who joins FC United from Ashton United.

In the pre-season of the 2017/18 season Crowley joined FC United and featured in a few pre-season games for the Reds including our Euro Away trip to Dublin. Despite being named in the squad for the new season, he was waiting on his international clearance to come through having played in America. Crowley eventually didn’t end up playing a competitive game for FC United.

Crowley said “The fans are second to none, when we went to Dublin, the crowd was ridiculous. The general feel of the club is amazing and the club is coming more and more professional. I’m looking forward to being back at FC.”

Beginning his football career at Everton’s Academy, he moved to Watford to undertake his scholarship, and ended up coming back up North playing for Morecambe and Fleetwood before moving to Stalybridge Celtic where he would make over 100 appearances in the National League North.

Last season Crowley had a pre-season for Ashton United but due to work commitments had to take some time away from football, but returned to Ashton to play in the league match against FC United at Hurst Cross and went on to have a good run of games. Although his preferred position is right back, Crowley is quite versatile and can play left back or wing-back.
