Gregory staying at Crawley

John Gregory has signed a new two-year contract to stay on as manager of League One side Crawley Town.

Gregory joined Crawley last December and signed his new deal before their final game of the season, at home to Bristol City on Saturday which ended in a 1-1 draw.

He said: "I am delighted to sign this contract and commit myself to the club for the next two years and hopefully beyond that.

"It has been a tough first few months because of the backlog of fixtures we faced, but the main thing is that Crawley Town start next season afresh as a League One club still with the same ambitions to progress that brought me to the club back in December.

"There are going to be some new faces this summer and I hope our fans get behind them and show their support in the same way they have the players who have worked so hard for me since I came to the club.

"I am really looking forward to building on the strong foundations that are in place here to try and bring us further success in the future."

Chairman Dave Pottinger added: "John has been extremely impressive in everything he has done since he came to the club.

"We are delighted he has agreed this new contract and we look forward to progressing and building as a club under his experienced guidance."
