Crawley Town can confirm the club's retained list following the conclusion of the 2020/21 season.

18 May 2021

Crawley Town Football Club can confirm that six players will leave the club when their contracts expire this summer.

The club would like to extend their thanks to the six players that are departing this summer. Their efforts for the club have been faultless, and we wish them well for the future.

The following players have been released from the club:

Mark Wright:

Mark joined the Reds in December 2020, having undergone a successful trial period with the club. Since joining, Wright featured on two occasions for Crawley, the first coming in the Emirates FA Cup against Leeds United and the other in League action against Harrogate Town.

Tarryn Allarakhia:

Tarryn joined the club in the summer of 2018 and has gone on to make over 50 appearances. After a successful loan spell at Wealdstone in the second half of the 2018/19 season, Allrakhia returned to the Reds and made a real impact on the first team. In the 2019/20 season, Tarryn made 23 appearances picking up three assists. The midfielder went on to make another 20 appearances for the club, recording another two assists.

David Sesay: 

David also joined the club in the summer of 2018, after a successful trial period saw then manager, Harry Kewell, snap the young full-back up on a two-year contract. Sesay quickly established himself as a fan favourite in his first season at the club, making 21 appearances in the 2018/19 season. After impressing in his first season, David became a regular starter in the 2019/20 season, making 31 appearances. Whilst not scoring for the Reds in that season, Sesay did dispatch a penalty in the shootout of the Carabao Cup third-round victory against Stoke City. A further 18 appearances were recorded in the 2020/21 season, taking David’s total to 70.

Stuart Nelson:

Nelson joined Crawley in November 2020 on an initial three-month deal just days before the Emirates FA Cup first-round clash with Torquay United. Nelson took his place on the bench at Torquay as young shot-stopper Tom McGill started in-between the sticks. A nasty injury to McGill early in the second half forced Nelson into his debut at Plainmoor. Nelson made two further appearances during his short spell at the club, one in the league away at Harrogate Town and a clean sheet against Ipswich Town in the EFL Trophy.

Josh Doherty:

Doherty signed for the Reds in September 2017 as one of Harry Kewell’s first signings, having managed Josh in the Watford youth setup. The full-back has made over 100 appearances for Crawley since his arrival. In his first season, Josh made just shy of 20 appearances, having made a strong claim for starting left-back at the tail end of the season. Doherty fully asserted himself as the first-choice left-back in the 19/20 season, only missing six of the Reds 37 league games before the season was curtailed in March 2020. Josh made 18 appearances for Crawley during the 2020/21 season before joining Colchester United on loan in January. 

Joe McNerney:

Joe has been at the Reds for over five years, having joined in the 2015/16 season from Woking. The centre-back has made over 140 appearances for the club, including 31 appearances during the 2020/21 season. After making 14 appearances in his first season, Joe quickly became the Reds starting centre-back during the 2016/17 season. After only making six league appearances during the 2019/20 season, McNerney was heavily involved in the 2020/21 campaign after injuries to Tony Craig and Tom Dallison. Joe became a consistent starter in the second half of the season, starting in the Reds last 16 league games of the season. 

Chief Executive Erdem Konyar said: “I would like to thank these six players for their efforts during their time at the club. Every one of these players gave their all for the badge, and I wish them all the best for the future.”

These players have had their one-year options triggered by the club:

Jack Powell

Jordan Tunnicliffe

Tom Nichols

Ricardo German

Glenn Morris

We are currently in contract negotiations with the following player:

Dannie Bulman

All loan players have returned to their parent clubs.
