Enzio Boldewijn has said he will be clocking up the miles this season, with the attacking midfielder happy to run and run for Reds.

The Dutchman was on target to net his first goal for the club in Saturday’s 3-2 defeat to League One opposition Millwall.

Having joined Crawley Town on a two-year contract in the summer, the former Utrecht and Almere City winger has promised fans that he’ll be putting in a shift on the pitch this season.

Boldewijn revealed running is a big part of his game and will be tormenting defences all the time he is on the pitch.

He said: “I am getting fitter every day. We train hard and one of my qualities is to run the whole match and that’s what the trainer wants me to do, so I will do it.

“Now I am here it is better than I imagined. The football is faster and physical and I love it.

“I am very happy to play English football, it’s what I wanted all my life and now I am here, I want to repay that in success.

“I had nine goals and 12 assists last season, but I want to do more this season, so more than ten goals and lots of assists.”

The 23-year-old has already formed a good understanding on the pitch with Jordan Roberts and Jason Banton as an attacking three in behind a lone striker.

And Boldewijn is enjoying the link they have formed, he added: “I am very pleased to be playing with them, they see the game very good. We play from the left to the right side very fast so there is space.

“Jordan is a player who gets the ball to people all the time in the midfield. Then I am wide and he can play the ball to me very fast so it is good.

“We have trained together for two or three weeks now and we get a better team every day.

“I am very happy with my first goal for Crawley, I waited a lot of matches for it and it was the time so I am very pleased.

“It’s one of my qualities, going to the inside and scoring with my left foot, I have scored a lot of goals with my left foot like that.”
