Lil Fuccillo joins the club
Crawley Town FC are delighted to confirm the appointment of Lil Fuccillo as our new Chief Scout.
The 57-year-old had a varied playing career, which included spells with Luton Town, Southend and Peterborough as well as a stint in America, between 1974-91.
He then moved into coaching and management and had periods in charge of both Peterborough and Luton.
In recent years he has concentrated on scouting, and has worked for Leicester City, Peterborough, Newcastle United and Swansea City. He was also Technical Director at Luton Town for a year before leaving in April 2013. Most recently, Lil has been scouting for Bristol City.
Manager John Gregory said: “Lil has got a wealth of experience and contacts in the game and is the ideal replacement for Martin Hinshelwood.
“I trust his advice on players and although the final decision on recruitment rests with me I know with my existing coaching staff and also Lil that I have excellent experience and knowledge to call upon when it comes to identifying players who we feel can take Crawley Town forward.”
Lil said: “I have known John a long time, we used to play against each other so it’s a few years ago since we first met!
“I like his approach to the game. He wants good footballers at Crawley who play the right way and hopefully I can help find them for the club.
“I really think John can take the club forward. I have been made to feel very welcome and I can’t wait to get started and help make Crawley Town an even better club.”
