Tom McGill has joined Crawley Town on loan for the 2020/21 season.

Goalkeeper Tom McGill is joining Crawley Town on a season-long loan.

The 20-year-old, who came through Albion’s Academy, made his debut for the under-23s in February 2019.

McGill joined Crawley in January for the remainder of the season, but that loan spell was cut short in March by the Covid-19 pandemic. 

Under-23s goalkeeping coach Shannon Ruth said, “I know the Crawley manager John Yems was very impressed with Tom earlier in the year and it was a shame that the pandemic cut short his loan spell. 

“So this is a good opportunity for him at a club he knows to get more experience under his belt. We wish him well for the season and will be monitoring his progress.”
