Crossley Returns To Fulham

Crossley Returns To Fulham

Owls boss Brian Laws has revealed that on-loan Wednesday stopper Mark Crossley has returned to train with Fulham - but Wednesday will still be paying his wages.

Following the defeat at Luton last Tuesday, Laws had insisted he needed to make changes at the back, and his former Nottingham Forest teammate was the first casualty as Laws brought in young Everton stopper Iain Turner on an initial one-month loan deal on Friday.

But instead of keeping the 37-year-old stopper at the club as back-up, Laws revealed to Radio Sheffield on Saturday afternoon that Crossley would be returning to Craven Cottage to train with the Premiership club rather than train at Middlewood Road, stating it would be 'beneficial' for both parties.

Prior to Saturday's victory over Southend, Laws said: 'Mark is still our player. Mark has been absolutely superb for us but of late his standards have dipped, he has cost us a few points. It's something that a manager has to react to.

'I'm not involving him this weekend against Southend, so he can get his head around what's happened.'

But there's still a question mark over whether Crossley will return to S6, with the option available for the Owls to further extend the one-month loan deal on young Everton stopper Iain Turner, and Chris Adamson still available as back up.

Pretty pointless if you ask me, something has obviously gone off behind the scenes

His goal against southampton covered up a poor display that day, and he had been poor in virtually every game in 2007.

strange move by laws, very strange... Sending a player back to his old team to train, it'd be more benificial if he trained with the team. Although we can talk Hull Have Parlour friday till monday.
