Alexander leaves Crawley on loan

Gary Alexander's Crawley future will be reassessed at the end of the season

Gary Alexander's Crawley future will be reassessed at the end of the season

First published in Crawley Town by

Crawley Town striker Gary Alexander has joined League Two AFC Wimbledon on loan for the rest of the season.

Alexander joined the Reds from Brentford nearly a year ago and has scored 12 goals in 47 appearances.

But he has failed to find the net in his last 21 League One appearances and has fallen down the pecking order at the Broadfield Stadium.

Crawley boss Richie Barker: “We have real competition for places now with the arrival of three strikers in the window and Billy Clarke in outstanding form.

“You can never guarantee any player his place and Gary is the same, even though he has been a superb captain for me and always given his very best in games and training.

“We felt a move for the rest of the season could help Gary rediscover his goalscoring form. I'm sure he will be a success at Wimbledon and he will be back at the end of the season when we will re-assess things.”

Gary, thanks for all your effort over the past few months. Some important goals as well. The brace at PNE and the winner at Valley Parade.
But for some reason it hasn't quite worked out over the past few games and a change could be good for both of us. Good luck in you new career at AFC.
