League Two is a test - Thordarson

Gudjon Thordarson expects a tough time for his players in League Two

Crewe Alexandra boss Gudjon Thordarson admits that some of his players may find it difficult to adjust to life in League Two next season.

The relegated Alex will be playing in the Football League's bottom division for the first time in 15 years.

"Some of the places we're going to have poor pitches," said Thordarson. "And the surroundings are not good either.

"The league will provide a different challenge for many of my players," the Alex boss told BBC Radio Stoke.

"It will come as a shock to some of them and we will find out what they're made of."

Crewe have so far released 10 players following relegation and have yet to sign any replacements.

Meanwhile, the club have announced that they will be freezing ticket prices right across the board for a fourth consecutive season.

An adult season ticket remains priced at £285 and junior season tickets are £50.
