One for the Future; Nick Powell

Nicholas Edward “Nick” Powell is a young midfielder who is currently playing at Manchester United. Nick started off his career at Crewe Alexandria, the local team of the city where he was born. At the delicate age of 16, Nick made his debut for Crewe.

Putting up great performances in the middle of the park with great movement and passes which were capped off with some brilliant strikes impressed his critics. Showing up only 19 times on the pitch in his first full season was “valuable” experience that did pay off in the following year.

Nick’s next season [2011-2012] was just an uphill ride from where he started off. Having being sent off earlier in the season, Nick hadn’t fully shown what he was capable of. Making his mark right after new years, Nicholas scored at a rate what seemed nearly impossible for a kid his age. There was still more to come though, Nick Powell bagged a brace included a 30 yard cracker in a 4-3 win against Gillingham.


Becoming the first player to win all the honors for Crewe at the end of the season, including Player of the Year, Goal of the Year and Young Player of the Year got the top division mangers on their feet but Sir Alex was the one to react quickly as he signed him in the transfer window.

On his Premier League debut Nick Powell scored a similar goal to one we have seen Scholes pull off. Coming on as a sub Powell winded up for a shot from outside the area to finish past Al-Habsi where the score was 4-0 in favor of the Manchester Club.
