Swansea fullback Tate: Crewe keeper Garratt has Premier League ability

Swansea City fullback Alan Tate is full of praise for Crewe Alexandra goalkeeper Ben Garratt.

Former Manchester United junior Tate is currently on-loan at Gresty Road.

Tate told The Sentinel: "Ben seems to have grown in confidence over the time that I have been here.

"He's a young lad, very young for a goalkeeper, but he's got all the attributes to make a good career for himself.

"He's been playing regularly since he was 19 and that's impressive in such a key position. I don't see why Ben shouldn't aim for the Premier League.

"He's got the right temperament, the right attributes and he will still grow and fill out.

"He gives you confidence, he comes for crosses which is rare, and he catches rather than punches which is even rarer."
