The club can confirm that midfielder Luke Rooney has today left the club, his contract, which ran until the end of the season, having been terminated my mutual consent.

Luke is heading to Major League Soccer to play for Arizona United, having had a successful two-week trial with the club last month.

“I wish the players, manager and club all the very best in the future.

I enjoyed my time at Crawley but I'm really looking forward to this new, totally different and exciting chapter in my career with Arizona United.”

Luke played 26 games for the club, having joined at the start of the season. He played on loan for the club earlier in his career while at Swindon Town.
