Crewe Alexandra nabbed their first away win of the season in the EFL League Two, with a narrow win over Stevenage .

Ben Nugent was sent off against his former club after tugging and eventually bringing down Shaun Miller, just 12 minutes into the game.

The visitors had an initial goal ruled out before the 45th-minute mark, but James Jones weighted pass, found Browery who struck home for the visitors after the hour mark.

Crewe Alexandra’s win puts them at 17th on the League Two log, 17 points adrift table toppers Lincoln City.

Meanwhile, Crewe’s wild jubilation won’t be short-lived as its former youth coach Paul McCann has been cleared not guilty of the four counts of indecent assault lobbed against him.

The former youth coach was accused of sexually abusing a teenage boy according to Sky Sports reports. However, a Chester Crown Court has cleared Paul McCann of all accusations against him.It took the Jury one hour and 40 minutes to draw up their verdicts.

The 57-year-old was alleged to have abused the youngster in the late 1980s.

McCann was allegedly accused of carrying out the assault on a trip abroad, then at his home in Crewe and after games at a local squash club.

McCann in series of police interviews, said he had offered to help the teenager after he felt pity on the family, because it looked like they need a helping hand.

He said he felt angry and shocked when he was accused by the police authorities of the crime.

He said: “It was innocent. It never crossed my mind. I was like a friend of the family. I took a bit of pity, they looked like they needed help.”

The married father-of-two as a matter-of-fact had never been in trouble with police before, and was all riled up because his mother passed away not knowing the truth.

McCann’s youth supporters team which he kickstarted during his teenage years, turned out later to be Crewe Alexandra’s youth team.
