They've been fantastic with me, and it's definitely an option. [LNB]"I'll sit down and speak to lots of people to decide what happens next. [LNB]"I've proven to myself that I've still got a lot to offer. I'll go away and look at what happens for next season." [LNB]Lawrence made 26 league starts for the Alex after joining them on loan from the Championship side in October.

[LNB]"Everyone has to push on for next season. This is a massive club and it deserves to be in League One, pushing for the Championship. [LNB]"The season has just been not good enough. You can't fault our effort, but trying sometimes is not good enough. [LNB]"Now you're going to see what the real men are made of, and we have to make sure we are ready to come back from it." [LNB]Crewe manager Gudjon Thordarson has started to build his squad for next season, releasing five out-of-contract players on Tuesday.
