This statement was read out by Ali Gaygusuz, PA to the club's owner Ziya Eren, at last night's Fans Forum.
This is the third season since the takeover and we have gradually progressed over the last two years. We are positive we have built a strong foundation for this season. Funding this season in the players' budget is the largest since we dropped into League 2.
It is vital the fans know that the infrastructure needs further development and we are working hard to improve our facilities. We are grateful to have Harry Kewell as Head Coach and believe he is a key element to the success of the team. Harry has instilled a great work ethic, passion and belief in his style of play.
There have been some ups and downs but I believe we must stay united at all times. I kindly ask the fans to get behind the team this season. We must all believe that this could be a special year for our club. We have a special group of people - the directors, management, staff and players are all committed to the cause. Our cause is Crawley Town, we love this club and we will do our utmost to deliver.
Come on Crawley!
