Save money and get your season ticket before Saturday, just like Dave
There are now only TWO days left before the Early Bird window closes at 1pm on Saturday so act now to save money on the cost of your season ticket.
Just like Liverpudlian Dave Birkenhead, who will be in the Checkatrade.com East Stand for John Gregory's first full season in charge of the Reds.
“I've been supporting the club for ten years now,” Dave explains. “I've had a season ticket for a year and have decided to renew for a second season to make the partnership a bit more formal. I've also renewed for my son Josh, who's 15. Crawley are his local team and he's been coming for about five years.
“When I first started watching I was on the half-way line and got get a decent view. I used to stand there and now the seats are there I sit where I used to stand. It's very good.”
Dave is very positive with the job that the Gaffer has done since his arrival at Crawley in December 2013 and is optimistic that JG can build on last season's 14th place finish.
“John's come in and stabilised the club after the departure of Richie Barker,” Dave said. “It was a bit of a shock seeing the amount of players he released but it's going to be exciting to see how he rebuilds and what happens in the coming season. You get the feeling he has some kind of plan – someone as good as him, you'd expect a plan.”
Dave is pleased with the capture of Brian Jensen after The Beast signed a one-year-deal on Tuesday and can remember the 38-year-old's years in the top flight.
“I remember when Brian was at Burnley a few years back in the Premier League and he looked class. I don't know an awful lot about Jimmy Smith but John obviously does so we'll see. Brian Jensen seems a decent signing though.”
Like several fans who have renewed their season tickets there's a certain Welshman that Dave would like to see back at the Checkatrade.com Stadium next season.
He said: “You start picking out big names who you want here but wages and finances could be a problem. I'd love to see Gwion Edwards back. He looked absolute class when he was here. If we could get him back from Swansea that would be brilliant.
“It would be nice to build on last season. I'd love to see us in the play-offs, they are reachable. I'd be disappointed with mid-table and I'd be gutted with relegation but would certainly take 10th place and upwards – that would be a good season in my opinion.”
