Shot-stopper joins Lindsey’s Reds on season-long loan

14 July 2023

Crawley Town Football Club is delighted to announce the signing of goalkeeper Luca Ashby-Hammond on a season-long loan from Premier League side Fulham.

Ashby-Hammond joined Fulham at under-9 level in 2008 and has progressed through the academy ranks at Craven Cottage ever since. At the age of 16, Luca was called up to Fulham’s Under-23s side and went on to make eleven appearances. Ashby-Hammond has also represented England several times at youth level.

The young shot-stopper became a regular for Fulham during the 2020/21 season and signed a new professional contract in February 2021, which keeps him at Craven Cottage until at least 2025.

In his two previous loan spells, Ashby-Hammond has represented clubs at National League level. Luca featured for Stockport County during the 2021/22 season and enjoyed a successful loan spell with Aldershot Town last season, where he featured in all 46 league matches for the Shots.

Speaking on the loan move, Manager Scott Lindsey said: "Luca is a goalkeeper who is well thought of at Fulham, so I am really pleased to get that one done. He is going to really push Corey for the number one shirt, which is exactly what we want, as every goalkeeper needs competition."

Luca’s loan deal is subject to EFL approval.
