Crawley Town Football Club is delighted to announce the signature of 20-year-old goalkeeper Taylor Seymour after his departure from Isthmian League South East Division side Burgess Hill Town, until the end of the 2021/22 season.
After spells with Worthing, Lewes and Lancing as a teenager, Seymour made a move to League One Portsmouth in September 2020
Seymour stayed with Pompey for the duration of the 2020/21 season before he was released in the summer before joining Burgess Hill.
The 20-year-old was our trialist goalkeeper in Wednesday’s friendly against Tottenham Hotspur XI.
On arrival, Seymour said: “I’m really happy to be here and back into professional football. A big thank you to the Gaffer and Dean [Lightwood] for allowing me to come in a train over the last few months and then give me this fantastic opportunity to come in full time with the club until the end of the season.”
Manager John Yems said: “I’m happy to welcome young Taylor to the squad, he is a promising young goalkeeper and has been training with us for some time. He will be able to learn from the experienced Glenn Morris which will be great for his game. I wish him all the best here at Crawley.”
Chief Executive Erdem Konyar said: “Taylor is a very promising local young goalkeeper who we are delighted to add to our ranks. I wish him all the best.”
Taylor has travelled to Northampton with the Crawley squad for tomorrow’s Sky Bet League Two meeting.
