Crewe Complete Deal for Lincoln & Former Wednesday Striker

Crewe Alexandra have pipped Scunthorpe United and Chesterfield FC for the services of Lincoln City and  former Sheffield Wednesday  striker Vadaine Oliver after a successful medical.  The agreed but undisclosed fee has also avoided the need for a tribunal.

Vadaine, released by Sheffield Wednesday last summer, wished the Imps well. We at STMI wish him well too. May he fit in with Crewe’s carpet football style and stay free from injury in what looks set to be an exciting first season for him in League 1.


The Imps have done well out of a lad signed on a peppercorn wage by David Holdsworth, before earning a deal until the end of last season. Vadaine scored 13 goals in 22 starts and 19 substitute appearances but shone during the latter part of the season culminating in a hat-trick at Hyde.
