Crawley Town Football Club can confirm that First-Team Coach Darren Byfield has left the club with immediate effect to take up a coaching role with Walsall.
Darren joined the Red Devils in the summer of 2022 and has worked closely with the first team for the past year. The former Premier League striker assumed First-Team Manager duties for a short interim spell in December before resuming the role of First-Team Coach under Scott Lindsey.
Byfield, who made over 130 appearances for the Saddlers during his playing career, links up with former Crawley left-back Mat Sadler, who was recently appointed as manager at the Poundland Bescot Stadium.
Everybody at the club would like to thank Darren for his time at the Broadfield Stadium and wishes him the best for the future.
