Career

Arsenal

Crowe started his career as a trainee at Arsenal, although he was unable to break into the first team with veteran right back Lee Dixon usually occupying the slot. He made his debut as substitute in a League Cup tie against Birmingham City on October 14, 1997 but was sent off after just 33 seconds by referee Uriah Rennie for a foul on Martin O'Connor; it was the fastest debut sending-off in English football history.[2] He played a further two matches for Arsenal (one in the League Cup, another in the FA Cup); after a loan spell at Crystal Palace he moved to Portsmouth in July 1999. With Arsene Wenger deeming him surprlus to requirements.

Portsmouth

After joining Portsmouth for a fee of £1,000,000, Crowe played 29 games during his first season at the club before being transfer-listed by Tony Pulis at the start of the 2000-01 season. Crowe joined Brentford on loan [3][4], and played 9 League games for the Bees before returning to Portsmouth where he made a further 24 appearances for Pompey. During his third season with Portsmouth, Crowe made 23 appearances and scored his first goal for the club during a 2-2 draw with Wolves at Molineux [5]. In his final season at Portsmouth, Crowe played in 17 games and scored 4 goals for the club. After winning promotion to the Premier League, Crowe was one of five players to be released by Portsmouth manager Harry Redknapp [6].

Grimsby Town

After his release by Portsmouth, Crowe joined relegated team Grimsby Town, on a two-year contract [7]. The Mariners had suffered relegation from the First Division in the previous season, whilst Crowe, was a part of the Portsmouth squad who had earned promotion from the same league. Signed by Paul Groves ,Crowe was one of the first of the new arrivals at Blundell Park during the 2003-04 season campaign, he was often deployed on the right side of defence and midfield, usually being toggled with John McDermott and Marcel Cas. Grimsby would go on to suffer a second successive relegation having fallen into the drop zone on the final day of the season. Crowe's first season at the club would see him make 36 appearances. During his second season with Grimsby, Crowe played in 40 games and scored 4 goals. With his contract exprining in the summer of 2004, Crowe was offered a new deal by Grimsby but also wanted to listen to other contract offers [8][9]. Crowe eventually agreed a contract at Northampton Town.

Northampton Town

Crowe initially signed a two-year contract with the Cobblers [10] and won promotion during his first season at the club in which he made 46 appearances and scored 2 goals. Crowe signed a two-year extension to his contract during June 2007 [11][12][13]. Crowe was appointed Northampton captain, and during the 2008-9 season Crowe scored 3 goals against his soon to be next employers Leeds United during the course of the season. Crowe was offered another new contract with Northampton [14] after the club were relegated to League Two on the final day of the 2008-09 season after a 3-0 defeat to Leeds United [15].

Leeds United

On June 16, 2009, it was announced that Crowe had rejected the new contract offer at Northampton before agreeing a contract at League One side Leeds United [16] , beginning on July 1, 2009. He made his first appearance in a Leeds shirt in the pre season friendly vs York City.

He made his first team debut for Leeds in the first game of the season win against Exeter City. Crowe has played his part in the defence who have had 8 wins from 9 games at the start of the season. He is Leeds' regular right back.

Crowe who had been struggling with a hamstring injury in games, suffered some hamstring damage in the game vs MK Dons and had to be substituted early on. Crowe missed his first Leeds United game after his hamstring injury ruled him out of the game against Carlisle United which subsequently kept Crowe out for a number of weeks. On 25 November 2009, Crowe returned from injury and played in Leeds' reserve game against Lincoln, starting the game in an unusual central midfield position to help boost his match fitness. Crowe started the FA Cup game against Kettering Town and kept his place in the side against Oldham Athletic. Crowe then started against Huddersfield Town but when Richard Naylor and Patrick Kisnorbo both returned from injury Leigh Bromby was moved back to right back and Crowe dropped back to the bench.

After Leigh Bromby picked up a suspension for 5 yellow cards, Crowe returned to the Leeds starting lineup for the FA Cup game against Manchester United. Crowe put in a heroic performance against Manchester United when Leeds won 1-0 away to Old Trafford on January 3 in the FA Cup. Crowe also provided a vital goaline clearance after Wayne Rooney's shot was saved by Casper Ankergren but was heading into the back of the net until Crowe sliced it away. Crowe kept his place in the team the following game against Wycombe Wanderers with Leigh Bromby taking a place on the bench.

Crowe scored his first goal for Leeds in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy Northern Final first leg against Carlisle United.[17] Crowe kept his place in the side for Leeds and played in the 2-2 draw against Tottenham Hotspur on 23 January 2010. After a poor performance against Swindon Town Crowe was omitted from the starting lineup against Colchester United. Crowe came on as a late substitute for Leeds in the replay against Tottenham Hotspur.

Crowe came back into the starting lineup for Leeds' JPT second leg game against Carlisle United. Crowe scored his second goal of the season for Leeds in the 3-2 win after a fine right footed volley, but Leeds ended up crashing out of the tournament after losing on penalties.[18]
