Nickname Red Devils
Time at Club:
Crawley Town are managed by Gabriele Cioffi who replaced Harry Kewell who left for Notts County.
Established in 1896, Crawley 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.
A single draw against Notts County in an otherwise black and white set of results has seen Crawley Town struggle for consistent results. Wins against Tranmere Rovers, Exeter City & Yeovil Town and defeats to Brighton & Hove Albion, Carlisle United, Forest Green, Morecambe, Lincoln City & Crewe Alexandra demonstate slightly erratic form.
