Dermot Drummy parts ways with Crawley Townby Mick Bates / 04 May 2017, 17:20Tweet
After signing a two-year deal in April last year, the tenure of Crawley Town coach Dermot Drummy has come to end a year earlier than expected. The former Chelsea Academy manager has left The Reds via the old classic “mutual consent” along with his assistant Matt Gray.
The club have issued a statement with owner Ziya Eren expected to host a media conference tomorrow.
“The club would like to thank Dermot and Matt for their hard work in the last 13 months and wish them all the best for their future careers.“
Drummy leaves Broadfield Stadium with Crawley Town having just one game left to play of a disappointing season which has seen the team amass just 50 points (so far). They are safe for another season being 21st in League Two and seven points clear of the relegation zone.
This season marked Crawley Town's return to League Two after a three season absence when they were defeated in the final game of the 2015/16 season at 1-2 home to fellow strugglers Coventry City.
The news of the exit of Drummy was met with indifference by fans of the club which is now looking for its fourth manager since the unfortunate exit of John Gregory due to his heart condition in 2015
The side will host Mansfield Town in the final game of the season on Saturday 6th May.
