Crawley have terminated the contract of defender James Hurst.

Hurst had struggled to make an impact after being signing on a free transfer from West Brom in the summer by former boss Richie Barker.

The 22-year-old right-back started just 11 league games for Reds with a further seven appearances as a substitute.

His last appearance was in the 2-0 defeat to MK Dons on Boxing Day prior to an unsuccessful loan spell at Northampton who sent him back to Crawley early.

Reds have since signed right-back Paul Connolly and Hurst had not even been on the bench for the last three games.

Chief executive Michael Dunford said: “James is now looking to further his career elsewhere and is talking to a club in Norway. We wish him all the best and thank him for his services to Crawley Town.”
