Crawley Town Appoint Harry Kewellby Jack Kitson / 23 May 2017, 12:30Tweet
Crawley Town have ended their search for a new manager after naming Harry Kewell as Dermot Drummy’s successor in the Red Devils dugout.
Drummy lasted just a year in the job, parting ways with the club earlier in May with just one game of the season remaining.
19 days later and Crawley have found their main in Australian Kewell who is well known on these shores after spells at Leeds and Liverpool during his playing days, winning the Champions League with the latter, while he went on to wear the shirt of Galatasaray, Melbourne Victory, Al Gharafa and Melbourne Heat.
Two years ago Kewell made his first steps into management after taking charge of Watford’s U-23 side, a post he held for just under two years up until his sacking last month following a series of poor results.
In a statement Crawley revealed that Kewell, who is currently working on his UEFA Pro License, will be assisted by the former Newport County boss Warren Feeney, and will be unveiled in front of the media on Friday.
