Lewis Young will make club history on Saturday if he plays against Stevenage in our Sky Bet League 2 game at the Lamex.

The defender is set to become the first player to make 200 appearances for the club in the Football League era in one continuous spell.

Lewis joined Crawley in 2014 and made his 199th career appearance for Reds on Saturday when he came back after injury as a second-half substitute in the 1-0 win over Cheltenham Town.

Of those 199 appearances, 178 have come in the League, five in the League Cup and nine in the EFL Trophy’s various guises. He has also made seven appearances in the FA Cup.

Lewis said: “It’s a nice little landmark for me personally and the club if I am involved on Saturday.

“It does seem like a very long time ago that John Gregory signed me but I have enjoyed the last five years and hopefully I have a big part to play now I’m fit again during the rest of this season.”

Dannie Bulman has already passed the landmark with 208 appearances for the club during our eight years in the EFL, but they have come in two separate spells.

Mark Connolly (192) and Jimmy Smith (168) are also closing in on 200 appearances for the Reds during our Football League era.
