Crawley Town: New head coach Dermot Drummy targets winning formula

28 April 2016

Crawley Town appointed Dermot Drummy as their new head coach on Wednesday, and he's hoping to bring a winning formula to the club.

The 55-year-old is a former Chelsea youth coach and replaced Mark Yates, who was sacked on Monday following a run of six successive Sky Bet League 2 defeats.

The Reds are 18th in the table, 14 points clear of relegation, and Drummy, who has signed a two-year deal, is relishing the chance he's been given.

“I'm very excited at the opportunity,” Drummy, who will be assisted by former Aldershot Town coach Matt Gray, said.

“It's important we get a winning mentality, but also a winning environment around the whole place; around the whole town.

“I like to play attractive football. For me, attractive football is 4-3-3, try and play through the thirds of the pitch, but I'll also look at the players and the qualities they've got - if we sometimes we need more direct football, we'll do that.

“I want to bring, hopefully, a winning formula and something that's entertaining to watch.”
