The overriding aim of Crewe is survival

Crewe boss Dario Gradi says the Alex's future as a professional club will not be risked in the pursuit of short-term success. Last season Crewe were relegated to the bottom tier of the Football League for the first time since 1994.

Gradi told BBC Radio Stoke: "People have always asked me what the long-term aim is at Crewe, and it's to stay in business and full-time football.

"We can't go for glory, we'll never have the financial backing to do that."
