After making his debut in the win over Bradford,Taylor said to the Tiser: “I'm delighted about the move.

"I've been stuck at Chelsea for six months just wasting away playing reserve team football, which at my age is no good. I work with the best players in the world but there is only a certain way that can take you and that is training day in and day out and not playing. I would rather play somewhere else instead of doing that.

“We all train in the same building. It's all good experience but, to me, playing matches is 20 times more important. It's time for me to move on.”

He explained: “I had a panic drive from Wales to Chelsea to pick up my things and then I had to get up here on Monday. It's a lot to squeeze into a short space of time and it took me seven hours. My dad helped me and I don't think I would have done it without him.

“It was difficult coming in, I hadn't even met any of the lads, but to get a start like that was good,” he said. “I can see potential here already.” 

Boss Andy Scott said: “I wanted someone who knew the league and knew what to expect. Rhys did very well at Crewe and he's a very level headed young man and takes it all in his stride. I brought him here at 1.15pm so to come straight into the side was a big ask. It was a comfortable debut because he didn't have much to do but his kicking was good and so was his organisation and starting positions.

“There were balls that came through that he picked up on the edge of our box and allowed our back four to play a little bit closer to the midfield. His talking was excellent.”
