Braintree Town manager Danny Cowley has praised the attitude of goalkeeper Michael Crowe, as the youngster makes his way in the game.
The 20-year-old joined Iron on-loan from Ipswich Town mid-January and, in seven league and cup games, has already kept four clean sheets.
The Wales Under-20 international has yet to make his debut for the Blues and prior to a temporary spell at League Two Stevenage, where he failed to feature, played four games on-loan at Braintree’s league rivals, Woking this season.
Out-of-contract in the summer, Crowe, who recently agreed to sign for another month at the National League side, will be aiming to continue his impressive run of form and hopefully catch the eye of Town’s goalkeeping coach Malcolm Webster.
Crowe played in last Tuesday night’s home defeat to Boreham Wood – a game which saw Iron fail to build on a new club record of seven consecutive league home games without conceding a goal – but has impressed Cowley overall.

“He came into the club and worked hard and has no airs and graces. He has been a credit to Ipswich Town.
“He has got fantastic raw material with which to develop, in terms of his height and size, and I think he is benefiting from the exposure of playing first-team football.
“Playing at National League level asks you different questions to playing under-21s football and it seems to be doing him the world of good.”
