Crawley Town are delighted to announce the signing of midfielder Rob Milsom after a successful trial period with the club during pre-season.
The 31-year-old featured in summer matches and has signed a short-term contract until January after impressive performances against Fulham, Ipswich Town, Charlton Athletic and Brighton & Hove Albion, and becomes Harry Kewell’s eleventh signing of the summer.
Milsom was released by Notts County at the end of the 2017-18 season, a club where he played 70 times, scoring once. He started his career with Fulham, from where he had loan spells at Brentford, Southend United and TPS Turku of Finland. He has also spells with Rotherham United – under Steve Evans - and Bury, and made over a half century of appearances for Scottish Premier League side Aberdeen.
Milsom expressed his delight at signing for the Reds saying, “I’m really happy to be at the club. Having played a few times in pre-season, I’ve got to know the lads really well.
“I can’t wait to get started and help this team win football matches.”
Head Coach Harry Kewell believes Milsom can only strengthen his side as we continue our busy August in Sky Bet League Two.
“Rob is a player I saw a lot of in pre-season and he really impressed me, enough to earn a contract. He is an exciting player with lots of experience who is a great addition to our midfield.”
Milsom has been given squad number 24 and, subject to league ratification, will be available for Tuesday’s Carabao Cup tie at Bristol Rovers.
