Sparrow heads for Crawley

Sparrow heads for Crawley

Matt Sparrow has made the move across Sussex to link up with League One outfit Crawley.

Having been left out of Poyet's plans for the current campaign, it made sense for all concerned for Sparrow to terminate his contract at the club - with the 31-year-old signing on a free with the Red Devils until the end of the season.

Despite struggling to hold down a first team spot for much of his time on the south coast, Sparrow produced a number of great moments in an Albion shirt - namely a debut brace to sink Swindon on the opening day of the season as the Seagulls went onto romp League One in 2010/11.

The box-to-box midfielder also netted a memorable brace to help Albion to a 3-0 win over Southampton in January 2012. Sparrow made 58 appearances for the club overall, scoring 8 goals in total.

Poyet, speaking to seagulls.co.uk, said of the move, "We thank Matt for everything that he has done for this club during the three seasons that he has been here and we are pleased that he has moved to a club doing well in League One.

"He knew that it would be difficult for him to break into the first-team this season but he has been the ultimate professional around the club and in training every day to keep himself fit and ready for an opportunity.

"He was an important part of our side that won League One during his first season at the club and we wish him all the best for the rest of his career."

Echoing Gus' comments, all the best to Matt at Crawley.
