Thank you to “r15srn” from the “CTFC Fans Forum” for answering these questions!

How Long Have You Supported Crawley Town?

15 years.

Last Season’s League Finish?


What Do You Think Of Your Manager?

Ever since he did his first forum I have liked his single minded determination to bring exciting entertaining football to Crawley. He promised us a great season and is now beginning to deliver on his promise.

Hopes/Expectations This Season?

Play offs and a day at Wembley but we are not ready for promotion just yet.

One(s) To Watch?

Mark Randall and Mark Connolly.

Top Seven Predictions?

Luton Town, Notts County, Wycombe Wanderers, Mansfield Town, Exeter City, Coventry City and Crawley Town.

Bottom Two Predictions?

Barnet and Forest Green Rovers.

Thoughts on Lincoln City?

Never seen you play but remind me of Crawley a few seasons ago when we went from Conference to division one in two seasons, then our bubble burst. Hope the same thing doesn’t happen to you.

Score Prediction?
Hate predicting us to win so 2-0 to Lincoln.

Random Fact About Your Club?

No one parks their car at the ground when they fly off on holiday from Gatwick Airport.

What are your proudest and most embarrassing moments as a Crawley Town Supporter?

Proudest: Seeing the team walk out at Old Trafford.

Worst: Watching John Akinde score two goals against us when he couldn’t hit a barn door when playing for us.

Do you have a Supporters Trust and what role do they play at the Club?

Yes and we now have a seat on the board.

Which was your favourite match involving Crawley Town?

When we best Derby County in the FA Cup. Winning with a last minute goal from the now infamous Sergio Torres. Everyone who was there will remember that moment for the rest of their lives.

Which was your least favourite match involving Crawley Town?

We were 2-1 up against Peterborough away and safe from relegation only to concede 2 goals in five minutes and our world turned upside down

I see your nick-name is “Red Devils”. But surely the best nick-name for you would be “Creepy”?

That’s not very nice is it now.

You seem to be picking up some good consistent results recently compared to earlier in the season, what do you think has been the catalyst for this upturn?

The new manager needed time to get the players believing in his methods. Apart from Luton I think we can beat anyone in the League. Next season is our time I hope.

Do you think Crawley will be able to keep Harry Kewell if a bigger clubs come calling. Can Crawley match his ambition?

Can any team in this division keep their manager if a big club comes calling? The new owner promised Championship football in 8 years. Harry will be off by then I think.

What is your long term ambition for your club?

I am hopeful we can establish ourselves as a Division One club eventually but our fan Base is not big enough for any higher.

With gates of 2000 or less, common, do you think Crawley can be a self sustaining Football League Club over the longer term?

We will only be able to survive if we can develop young talent and sell them on.

Enzio Boldewijn was a great find a couple of years ago, but what are your chances of keeping hold of him in the summer?

I think he will stay for the next two seasons then he will fly the nest. Good luck to him as he has great potential.
