Crawley Town star misses out on top award



Crawley Town forward Reece Grego-Cox missed out on taking home the Republic of Ireland Men’s Under-21s Player of the Year Award at the ‘3’ FAI International Awards ceremony in Dublin on Sunday.

The Reds’ striker was nominated alongside Portsmouth winger Ronan Curtis, the winner of the award, and Liverpool defender Corey Whelan.

The 22-year-old has made eleven appearances for the Irish under-21s since debuting in 2015 and scored all four of his international goals in the Republic’s failed attempt to qualify for the 2019 UEFA European Under-21 Championships.

The former Woking player, who is now ineligible to represent the under-21s, is now aiming to cement his place in Gabriele Cioffi’s team and catch the eye of Ireland senior manager Mick McCarthy.

Grego-Cox has made 25 appearances in all competitions for the Red Devils this season but has yet to score for the club.

Speaking to Grego-Cox said: “I really enjoyed playing for Ireland and it definitely improved me as a player. It was nice to get nominated for the award, a proud moment for me and my family.

“Now I want to kick on at Crawley and hopefully I can force my way into the full squad soon.”

Crystal Palace defender and Lewes midfielder join Crawley Wasps



Crawley Wasps have signed Crystal Palace defender Hope Nash and Lewes midfielder Charlotte Owen ahead of their first season in the third tier of women’s football.

Both Nash, 21, and Owen, 23, bring higher-division experience to the newly-promoted Wasps squad.

Midfielder Charlotte Owen has joined Crawley Wasps from Lewes.

Full-back Nash played 15 games in the FA Women’s Championship last season for Palace. She was also a key part of the Charlton Athletic squad that won the FA Women’s National League Southern Premier Division – where Wasps will play this season – in 2017-18.

Crawley-based Owen spent two years with Lewes, playing in both the third and second tiers, and was previously with Brighton.

“I just want to get back to playing and enjoying my football, and I think Crawley’s the best place for me to do that. It should be a great season,” she said.

Nash added: “It’s such a lovely club. The players and the coaching staff have been so welcoming – this is the best I’ve settled in at a club.

“There’s a winning mentality throughout the squad. We’re not here just to make up the numbers.”

Nash and Owen take Wasps’ summer additions to three, after the arrival of Lewes striker Rebecca Carter.

Paul Walker’s side were narrowly edged out 1-0 by Championship club Charlton in a pre-season friendly on Sunday and take on Nash’s other former side Palace this weekend, at the Ewhurst training base in Ifield Drive, Crawley.

They begin the new league season at home to Plymouth Argyle on Sunday August 18.
