Crawley Town FC are excited to launch our new footballing challenge ‘While the Cat’s Away’. We are inviting fans, partners, charities, schools, junior football teams and local businesses to take part in the inclusive challenge which includes the chance to watch a first-team training session, meet the first-team squad and playing staff, and appear on our weekly show Talk of the Town.
