In his diary for the Spurs website, Barnard wrote: "First of all, the loan move to Crewe was ideal for me. It's something I've always wanted to do, to go and test myself in league football and this is my chance. On the playing side of things, I've settled well. Crewe has a reputation of bringing youngsters on, the coaching is great and I've really enjoyed it so far."
Tottenham's Barnard happy at Crewe
