Crawley Town Football Club are happy to confirm the signing of 22-year-old Alex Battle who has signed on a one-year deal with a second year option.
Battle starred in pre-season and became known to fans after some impressive “Trialist” displays within the side. Alex notably netted a hat-trick in our 1-6 victory over Horley Town, and was consequently our top goalscorer in pre-season.
22-year-old Alex Battle started his career at Plymouth Argyle, where he also spent loan spells at Salisbury and Truro City before his release from the Pilgrims in 2019. Alex Battle featured for Plymouth in League One and the EFL Trophy, before joining up with his previous loan club in Truro City, where he enjoyed two seasons adding more career goals to his tally.
Manager John Yems said: “I’m very pleased to have Alex with us in the squad, he has been looking for a deserved opportunity in the first team and fans saw him score a hat-trick against Horley in pre-season, I wish him well here at Crawley.”
Chief Executive Erdem Konyar said: “Alex has been with the club for a little while. He has shown an eye for goal and determination to progress. We are happy to have him among us.”
Battle is included in the matchday squad to take on Bristol Rovers today.
