This is Staffordshire -Crewe Alex: Keeper Shane McWeeney handed chance
- CREWE plan to field former QPR keeper Shane McWeeney in one of their two warm-up games on Monday.
- With first choice Steve Phillips sidelined until September, Chelsea youngster Rhys Taylor will start the season in goal after he was signed on a two-month loan deal.
- But Dario Gradi needs cover on the bench and McWeeney could be retained on a non-contract basis if he impresses in Crewe's pre-season opener.
- The departure of Adam Legzdins to Burton Albion and the release of Academy keeper Danny Platt had depleted Crewe's ranks ahead of Monday's double-header at Evo-Stik Division One South teams Kidsgrove Athletic and Quorn (both 7.30pm).
- McWeeney, aged 20, has yet to make a senior appearance having been confined to reserve-team action at Tranmere and QPR, where he was released after one season.
- Crewe chief scout Neil Baker said: "He'll be training with us for the next few days and then he'll play on Monday night."...This is Staffordshire

Warnock/QPR Official Site
- Neil Warnock is relishing taking the R's First Team squad on tour to Cornwall next week - and can't wait to be reacquainted with the Cornish people!
- Over the course of their week-long trip to the West Country, Rangers play Tavistock AFC, Bodmin Town and Torquay United - and the gaffer revealed how much he is looking forward to the R's pre-season campaign really kicking off.
- "The Cornwall tour is all about giving the lads some game time," he told www.qpr.co.uk.
- to start getting minutes under their belts.
- "We're taking 20 odd players with us and they'll all get at least 90 minutes under their belts over the course of the three matches.
- "Pre-season is all about fitness, fitness, fitness! The results of the first few games are largely immaterial."
- Warnock added: "People may question why we've not got a pre-season friendly against a Premier League side.
- "We thought we had Tottenham, but that fell through.

- "But to be honest I'm not too disappointed. I've played sides like that in the past - where you don't get to see too much of the ball - and that can be a worthless exercise."
- Going back to the tour to Cornwall, the R's boss continued: "The facilities are great down there.
- "It will be hard graft for a week, but there'll also be time for some relaxing - a round of golf if the lads fancy it.
- "However, even on the days we play, we'll be doing some physical stuff in the morning of the game."
- Warnock is encouraging Rangers fans to follow their side in great numbers during pre-season, adding: "I'm sure we'll have a few fans following us around and from past experience, there's always a great friendly atmosphere around the grounds.
- "It's like a pre-season party - it's fantastic!
- "It's a neglected part of the football world if you ask me.
- "The Cornish people always really appreciate Clubs like QPR coming down - I've even been asked to do the official opening of the new changing rooms at Tavistock!"
