Crawley Town defender Josh Yorwerth has signed a new one year contract.

He has the option of staying on another year at the end of the deal.

Yorwerth, 22, said: "I’m delighted to commit my future to the club. I had a frustrating time last season with injuries but I thought I definitely progressed as a footballer and I am really looking forward to trying to impress the new management team when we report back for pre-season.

"We have got a good squad already in place next season and I know from speaking to the other lads at the end of the season how determined we all are to achieve our potential and push on next season under Harry and Warren."

The Welshman made 23 appearances for the side in all competitions last season, scoring three goals.

His first goal of the 2016/17 campaign came in the 1-0 win over Exeter City back in August, before he notched at home to Newport County in Crawley's 3-1 home win in December.

The defender's final goal of the season came in Reds' 2-0 home win over Yeovil Town at the start of 2017.
