Nicholas "Nick" Edward Powell (born March 23, 1994 in Crewe ) is an English football player on the position of a midfielder who can also be used as a striker . He played in the youth division of Crewe Alexandra as well as in the professional team of the club with game operations in the fourth-rate English Football League Two .


Career at Crewe Alexandra

Powell, who was born in Cheshire , began his active football career in the youth division of his home club, Crewe Alexandra FC . There he played in the club's U-18 team at the age of 15 and was considered a great talent in English football in his early teens. In the preparation for the season before the 2010/11 season , he already gained his first experience in the professional team of the English fourth division club. He was first used in July 2010 for the professional team when he was used as a substitute in a friendly match against the Premier League promoted FC Blackpool .

Powell finally made his league and professional debut on August 14, 2010 when he came on the pitch in the 85th minute of the 3-2 away defeat by Cheltenham Town for striker Clayton Donaldson, who was around ten years older than him .

Powell hit the UK sports news months before his competitive debut when it became known that Arsène Wenger , long-time coach of Arsenal FC , was interested in the promising young Crewe Alexandra talent. However, it only took a few days for the current interim coach of the professional team, Dario Gradi , to announce that he was not willing to sell any of his academy players.

Transfer to Manchester Utd.

For the 2012/13 season Powell moved to Manchester United . He signed a four-year contract. There he made his competitive debut on September 15, 2012 in the home game against Wigan Athletic and scored his first goal for Manchester United when he scored in the 82nd minute to make it 4-0. On September 2, 2013 he was loaned to the Football League Championship at Wigan Athletic until the end of the season. On September 1, 2014, he moved to the newly promoted Leicester City on loan until the end of the 2014/15 season . After three missions, the lending business ended early at the end of the year.

On February 1, 2016, Powell was awarded the Football League Championship at Hull City through the end of the 2015/16 season .

The way through the English junior team

Powell's journey through the youth national teams of his home country England began in 2009 when he was first called up for the England U-16 national team. He made his team debut in the Victory Shield of 2009 , when he ran up in the game against the U-16 national team of Northern Ireland and played through the full match duration. After a 2-1 win over the Scottish U-16 national team in the third and last game of the purely group stage tournament, England was able to take the title again. In addition, Powell was appointed by U-16 national coach Kenny Swain in the English national team, who took part in the 2010 Montaigu tournament , an international U-16 tournament in Montaigu ( France ). In the course of the tournament, in which England U-16s finished second behind Portugal after a failed penalty shoot-out, Powell was used in several games and scored his first and only goal in the 6-0 victory over the U-16 national team of Gabon for England's U-16 national team. Powell, who had already turned 16 around two weeks earlier, ended his active career in the U-16 national team with an appearance in the final against Portugal.

Only shortly afterwards he was called up in England's U-17 team, for which he made his debut on August 25, 2010 in a 2-2 draw against his colleagues from Turkey and was in action for the full length of the game. On his second appearance, Powell scored a 4-0 win over Australia's U-17 national team in the 80th minute to make it 4-0. The young player completed his last game to date (as of September 4, 2010) for an English national youth team with one commitment and one goal in the 3-1 victory over his colleagues from Portugal. With the victory over Portugal, the troop trained by John Peacock also won the so-called FA International U17 Tournament .
