An update on our Reds away from The People's Pension Stadium this season

7 March 2022

Reece Grego-Cox

25-year-old attacker Reece Grego-Cox was loaned out to National League outfit Barnet in mid-February, where he has quickly become a fan favourite at the Hive after four games.

After nearly two years out injured, Reece was introduced back into the Crawley side ten times in the league this season, having consecutive starts in impressive performances against Bradford and Swindon away.

Grego-Cox was later sent to Barnet in the search of more minutes, and the forward has already got three full games in North London from four overall starts. The Irishman was brought straight in for 90 minutes in his debut in a 2-2 draw down in Torquay, before starting against King’s Lynn and Halifax in the week after.

Reece scored his first goal after five minutes last Saturday against Dover in a mega 6-0 win at the Hive with a strike reminiscent of his goal of the month nominated effort against Scunthorpe for Crawley in 2019, cutting in from the left side and shooting with his right.

His tally was doubled when he got Barnet’s fifth in the 87th minute - a top performance from Crawley’s No.7.

Sam Matthews

Creative midfielder Sam Matthews was loaned out to National League side Aldershot Town last month, a side that Jack Powell spent time at in the in 2019/20 season.

Aldershot boss Mark Molesley started Sam straight away against Dover two weeks ago. The game finished 0-0 at the EBB Stadium and the midfield maestro played 90 minutes, as the home side were frustrated not to score.

Since then, Matthews has come off the bench in consecutive games against high-flyers Wrexham and Stockport, playing over thirty minutes in both fixtures which ended in defeats for the Shots.

Sam will remain at Aldershot until the end of the season.

Harry Ransom

22-year-old Harry Ransom has been on-loan at his former club Dover Athletic since the beginning of the season, where he has been a key figure in defence at the Crabble Stadium all season long.

Ransom has played 25 matches in the league this season, scoring once. After off-field antics left Dover with a tough points deduction at the beginning of the season, the team have struggled all season, and sit bottom of the National League table.

The Crawley defender has been a bright spark within the side however, and has proved integral in keeping impressive clean sheets against the likes of Aldershot, Eastleigh and Solihull Moors this season.

Harry scored his only league goal of the season in a 2-3 defeat to Wealdstone, a side who now have Ex-Reds Nathan Ferguson and David Sesay playing for them.

Davide Rodari

After joining Isthmian League leaders Worthing last month, and scoring four goals in five games during his impressive short stint, Italian striker Rodari made the switch last week to join National League South leaders Dorking Wanderers, who are managed by Marc White.

Davide was put straight into the starting XI to take on Dartford away from home on Saturday, where he played 69 minutes in a 3-2 defeat.

The striker will remain with Dorking until the end of the season.

Alex Battle

After an impressive loan stint at East Grinstead Town, Alex Battle joined former club Truro City on loan until the end of the season. The Southern League South side sit ninth in the table, and will hope to challenge for a play-off spot towards the end of the season with Battle leading the line.

Since his arrival, Battle has started six games with one substitute appearance, and has scored twice with a brace in his second game against Poole Town, who are level with Truro on points so far this season.

Ronan Silva

After joining Crawley late last month following his time at Biggleswade Town, 21-year-old midfielder Ronan Silva was loaned to National League outfit Eastleigh, where he joined back up with Eastleigh Manager Lee Bradbury, who departed Crawley Town just a week ago.

Silva was thrown straight into the matchday squad to take on Wealdstone on Saturday by Bradbury, who brought him on for 18 minutes in a 4-1 victory over Wealdstone in Lee’s first game as manager.

Ronan will remain at Eastleigh until the end of the season.

Szymon Kowalczyk

18-year-old Polish midfielder Szymon Kowalczyk was loaned to local side East Grinstead Town in early February. 

Kowalczyk has gained important match minutes in the men’s game since arriving at the Wasps and has made important substitute appearances in league competition.

Rafiq Khaleel

19-year-old midfielder Rafiq Khaleel enjoyed a two-month loan at Southern League South side King’s Langley earlier in the season, before he made the switch to Gosport Borough in the same division in late February, and was recommended to the manager by Ex-assistant Lee Bradbury.

Like Szymon, Rafiq has gained more minutes in the men’s game since his arrival down south, and has impressed the fans and coaches in the short space he has been there.
