Shot-stopper to return to parent club.

17 January 2023

Crawley Town Football Club can confirm that goalkeeper Ellery Balcombe has been recalled from his loan spell by Brentford. The shot-stopper has left the Reds with immediate effect to return to the Premier League Club.

Ellery made 12 appearances during his short sting at the club. He immediately impressed fans with a series of spectacular saves on his debut during Crawley’s first game of the Sky Bet League Two season. Unfortunately, Ellery suffered from an injury during that game and didn’t return to the Reds until late October. He quickly re-established himself as the number one and went on to make 12 appearances across all competitions. 

Director of Football and Interim CEO Chris Galley said: "I would like to thank Ellery for his excellent performances during this season and Brentford for loaning us a quality goalkeeper. I wish him all the best in his career and for the rest of the season."

The club would like to thank Ellery for all of his contributions during his short time at the Broadfield Stadium.
