Lanre’s form for the Minstermen earned him selection in the League Two Team of the Season.

In his first season with the club he helped York win the Conference play-offs and FA Trophy.

Last season Lanre played in all York’s league games as well as picking up three player of the year awards at the end of the season.

Lanre said: “I’m delighted to be a Crawley player. It is a wrench to leave York because the club and fans were fantastic and I really enjoyed my time there.

“Crawley are an ambitious club and I’m looking forward to testing myself at League One level. I feel I can make a big impression here and I’m looking forward to the start of pre-season training in three weeks.”

John Gregory added: “Lanre will be a terrific signing for us. He is a real athlete and an excellent defender. We have beaten off competition from a few clubs in our division to sign him and I’m delighted to have him here because he’s a player I have been keen to sign for a number of months now.”
