Striker Shamir Fenelon was ‘buzzing’ to net his first goal for Crawley Town on Saturday.

The local lad’s 83rd-minute strike saw Reds pinch a point off promotion-chasing Plymouth Argyle in a 1-1 draw at the Checkatrade Stadium.

The former Ifield Community College student, from Bewbush, has found chances limited after joing Reds in the summer, but always impressed in substitute appearances.

His wait for a goal for his home-town club ended on Saturday and he said: “I am delighted to be fair.

“To come off the bench and get the equaliser. I think we needed a result as well, so I am buzzing.

“I had some off my boys in the crowd and they haven’t been for a few weeks, so to score in front of them and obviously a lot of people know me from around here, so it felt good.

“I was pleased as I have been coming off the bench quite late on, but I was pleased to get a decent run-out.

“I feel like I can impact the game and get my legs goings in that amount of time, so thanks to the manager for putting me on.

“They brought a lot of fans, there was a good feeling around the stadium, a good crowd, good atmosphere, so it made it extra special.”
