Tariq Uwakwe departs for Crewe

The midfielder previously spent the 2020/21 season on loan in League One with Accrington Stanley and now returns to the third tier following 14 years as a Chelsea player, having initially joined our Academy as an Under-9.

During his time in Lancashire, Uwakwe utilised his versatility and played a number of roles, including left wing-back, as he made 21 appearances in his first experience of senior football. 

The 22-year-old also scored four goals, all of which came in his first two games for Accrington, including a hat-trick on his debut in the EFL Trophy.
