Crawley Town Football Club are delighted to announce the signing of former Bristol Rovers striker Tom Nichols on a one year contract with an option to extend for a further year.
Nichols played 34 games last year scoring and assisting four goals. Nichols started the season at parent club Bristol Rovers, before being loaned out to Cheltenham in January 2020. Nichols' contract was not renewed by the Pirates this summer.
Nichols came through the youth ranks at Exeter City before going out on loan to Hereford and Dorchester. He broke into the Grecians first team in the 2013/14 season and subsequently played 112 matches scoring on 36 occasions before earning a move to Peterborough in 2016.
Tom played on over 50 occasions for the Posh scoring 14 times. He signed for Bristol rovers in July 2017 making 117 appearances during his time at the Memorial Ground.
Technical Director Erdem Konyar said: “Tom comes at a good age and with EFL pedigree of League 1 and 2. He has a good familiarity with some of our players and staff. He will become an important part of our attacking force.”
Head coach John Yems said: “I have known Tom for a long time and I think he can be a really good asset for the club. There were numerous clubs after Tom so it is a compliment to everyone here that he has decided to sign for Crawley.”
