Crawley Town secure deal for released AFC Wimbledon man


George Francomb has signed a two-year deal with Crawley Town – quickly sorting a new club following his release by AFC Wimbledon.

The 26-year-old, who can play in both midfield and defence, spent six seasons on the Dons’ books.

Francomb told Crawley Town’s official website:  “I’m delighted to be joining Crawley and I am looking forward to working under Harry Kewell. I know the type of football he likes to play and that really appeals to me.

“It’s a good club and I’m looking forward to joining up with the other lads at pre-season and cracking on.”

Selim Gaygusuz, Town’s head of recruitment, said: “George has won this league before with Wimbledon and he is very versatile. He can play right-midfield, central midfield or right-back and he’s got great ability with his set-piece delivery. Myself and [head coach] Harry Kewell feel he is going to really improve our options and we’re delighted he has agreed to join us.”
