Crawley Town will play a Chelsea XI as part of their pre-season preparations.

The sides will meet at the Stadium on Saturday August 2 (3pm).

Reds boss John Gregory said: “Chelsea have a very strong Academy set up and of course they won the FA Youth Cup last season.

“So it’s just the sort of test we are looking for a week before the League One campaign kicks off and we’re very much looking forward to it.”
