Crawley Town Football Club can confirm that Lee Bradbury has left the club to take the managerial role at National League side Eastleigh after his contract was mutually terminated.
Lee Bradbury joined the club in December 2019 alongside John Yems as Assistant Manager. Lee has played a pivotal role in the club’s recent success, which includes the infamous Emirates FA Cup run and victory over Premier League Leeds United.
In light of this news, Lewis Young has stepped up to take the Assistant Manager role, which he will begin from tomorrow evening’s game against Oldham Athletic.
Manager John Yems said: “We are sad to see Lee go, but we can all see his reasons for wanting to take the opportunity. We have had some very good times here together, and he is a very honourable man that deserves a lot of credit for what we have done here. I class Lee as a friend, not just an acquaintance, and there are not many people in football you can say that about.”
Chief Executive Erdem Konyar said: Lee has served the club well and leaves us having made great memories that we will always cherish. This is a loss for the club, but we have to show the understanding for Lee to move on and take on a new challenge. I thank Lee for his honest, dedicated and loyal service to the club.
Everybody at the club wishes to thank Lee for all of his efforts during his time at The People’s Pension Stadium and wishes him all the best for the future.
