Everton academy graduate Christopher Long has signed for English League One club Crewe Alexandra following a two-year spell at Motherwell.

Long started his career at Everton and made a handful of senior appearances, joining Motherwell in 2019. A successful first season with seven Scottish Premiership goals prompted Motherwell to hand him a new deal last summer, Long scoring four goals in 24 matches during the 2020/21 league season.

In total, the former Everton forward scored 17 times for Motherwell. Long said of his move to Crewe on a two-year deal: “I’m delighted and over the moon to get it sorted. As soon as I heard of the interest I felt this was the right move for me and I can’t wait to get started.”

Meanwhile, Motherwell have handed goalkeeper Scott Fox a new one-year deal. The goalkeeper was injured for most of last season through a knee injury but featured twice for Scottish Championship side Greenock Morton during a brief loan spell at the end of the campaign.
