Crawley Town Football Club is delighted to confirm the loan signing of talented midfielder Teddy Jenks from Brighton and Hove Albion.
The talented midfielder spent the 2021/22 season with Aberdeen, where he impressed in the Scottish Premiership. Teddy made 24 appearances for the Dons, scoring twice in the process.
Teddy joined the Albion at under-10 level and has progressed his way through the Seagulls' youth setup. Jenks made his professional debut for Brighton & Hove Albion on 25 September 2019, starting in a 3–1 defeat against Aston Villa.
Jenks has also represented his country at youth level. Current Crawley manager Kevin Betsy gave Jenks his first Three Lions call-up whilst working with England’s under 15 team at St Georges Park.
Speaking on Teddy's move to the Reds, manager Kevin Betsy said: "Teddy is a real coup for the football club. He is a very talented and highly rated player at Brighton and Hove Albion. He is an England youth international and has gained some very good experience in the senior game with Aberdeen last season playing against the likes of Rangers. He is a very dynamic midfielder. He can score goals and create chances and has really good physicality. There were a large number of highly rated clubs that were in for Teddy. I would like to thank Brighton's loans manager Gordon Greer, first-team manager Graham Potter and chairman Tony Bloom for their help with this deal and for allowing us to have Teddy's services for the season."
Teddy linked up with the squad during yesterday’s training session and has travelled with the team to Carlisle ahead of Saturday’s opening Sky Bet League Two fixture.
