Reds signed striker Ricky German, one of the most prolific goal scorers in non-league football this season, on a three-year contract on January 1 2019.

The 19-year-old former Chesterfield player has netted 28 times in 21 games for Southern League Hendon this season – form which attracted interest from a host of League clubs.

Ricky was a trainee at Chesterfield and signed a two-year pro deal with the Spireites in 2016 when he was 17, having already made three first-team appearances.

He played under three different Chesterfield managers as the club slipped down from League One to the National League before he was released last summer. Last season he scored for Alfreton Town, Sheffield and Matlock Town during loan spells.

Ricky linked up with Hendon and had been a regular scorer for them before returning to the professional ranks. He made his Crawley debut as a second-half substitute in the 1-0 defeat to Port Vale in January 2019.
