Josh Yorwerth pens three-year deal

The defender's new contract ties him to the club until 2020

19 September 2017

The club is delighted to announce that Josh Yorwerth has signed a new contract that will keep him at Crawley Town until the summer of 2020.

The Welshman's previous deal was up at the end of the season, but following an impressive start to the campaign he has now been tied to the Reds for an additional two years.

Yorwerth initially joined Crawley on a month's loan from Ipswich Town back in September 2015, and in June 2016 signed permanently for the club.

Since his arrival, the defender has made 31 appearances for the Reds, and scored three goals.

The defender spent his youth career at Cardiff City, before moving onto the Tractor Boys' Championship side in 2015, and then onto the Reds in West Sussex.

Head Coach Harry Kewell was delighted with the news that the club had secured Yorwerth's future beyond the season.

"Josh is someone I've been really impressed with since I've come in - he has shown great hunger, desire and work ethic," Kewell said.

"We suffered some injuries early on this year and Josh came in and really took his chance, which was fantastic to see.

"He's still young, only 22, so he's only going to improve and having him tied to the club for the next three years is only a good thing and shows the direction the club is heading."
