Crawley Town Fans’ favourite Matt Harrold has admitted he would love to stay on for a fourth season at Crawley Town.

The former Bristol Rovers player has been offered a new deal along with Lewis Young and is considering his options before signing.

He is loved by fans, having played a variety of roles since being signed by John Gregory in June 2014.

Harrold said: “I haven’t signed yet but I’d love to stay at Crawley; I think everyone can see whenever I put on a Crawley shirt it matters to me and I always give 100 per cent.

“I’ve played in goal, been temporary manager, fans will have seen I always give my all.”

Harrold’s season last season was ruined by injury. Major Achilles injuries to both feet, plus a lengthy recovery following a knee operation restricted him to making just 15 appearances, scoring one goal.

This was a distinct contrast to 2015-16 when he made 39 appearances and scored nine goals.

He said: “At first I had my doubters but then I proved myself with a good season. Last season was frustrating, the most frustrating of my life.

“I really hope to stay at Crawley. I’ve spoken to a few clubs and I will make a decision.”
