Lewis Young: New Crawley signing

Young becomes the West Sussex side's 11th signing of the summer following his release from Bury at the end of his contract.

Crawley manager John Gregory told the club's official website: "Lewis gives us something different. He's quick and can play on either flank and even up front. We think he's got a lot to offer and it's our job to create the right environment for him to flourish.

"The signs are that we are doing that because he has been excellent in pre-season training and we saw flashes of what he is capable of on Friday against Billingshurst with his performance in the first half."

The 24-year-old has nearly 100 professional career appearances under his belt since coming through at Watford. He has since played for Hereford, Burton, Forest Green, Yeovil, Aldershot and Bury and his best stint was arguably in 2011/12 season, when he played 34 times for Northampton.

Young said: "I'm very pleased to be a Crawley player. I've been very impressed with the manager and the other lads and I am looking forward to having a successful season in League One. "It's a fresh challenge for me and I can't wait to show the Crawley fans what I can offer."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
