Time at Club:





Crawley Town are managed by Dermot Drummy who became the club's head coach in April 2016, replacing Mark Yates in the dugout.

Established in 1896, the Red Devils have gradually worked their way up through the non league system and are now looking to progress through the Football League.

Having secured the Southern League Championship in the 2003-2004 season, they were then looking to gain promotion out of the Conference and they finally achieved that feat in the 2010-2011 season as they breezed to the championship with a staggering 105 points to venture into League Two under the stewardship of Steve Evans.

One of the club's greatest moments came in the 2011 FA Cup, as they embarked on a special trip through the greatest cup competition in football. Having already beaten Derby County and Torquay United, the Red Devils booked a place in the 5th round with a more famous Red Devils outfit, as they gained the plum draw of Manchester United at Old Trafford.

However, they failed to cause a giantkilling as they went down 1-0 to the Premier League giants, but were unlucky to not scrape a draw as last minute header hit the United bar to leave Crawley fans going home in disappointment.

Recent Form


A single draw against Blackpool in an otherwise black and white set of results has seen Crawley Town struggle for consistent results. Wins against Colchester United, Hartlepool United, Yeovil Town and Newport County and defeats to Morecambe, Luton Town, Notts County, Plymouth Argyle and Leyton Orient demonstate slightly erratic form.
