A YouTube star is joining Crawley Town for training with the chance of playing in an FA Cup tie.

Tobi Brown, 29, known as TBJZL, is a member of YouTube group The Sidemen.

He will train alongside his brothers Manny Brown and Jed Brown on November 1, with all three to be assessed by Crawley staff for possible inclusion in their FA Cup First Round fixture at home to Accrington Stanley.

Crawley scouts were at a recent YouTube charity match last month at Charlton Athletic’s ground as part of new owner Wagmi United’s recent partnership with The Sidemen.

Scouts must have been impressed with the brothers who combined to score three of the eight goals in their teams victory.

Preston Johnson, co-chairman of Crawley Town Football Club, said: “We’re excited to have Tobi, Manny and Jed joining us for training on Tuesday and we’re looking forward to seeing what they can bring to the club.

“Depending on how they perform, we may extend offers to continue training with the lads on a trial basis and potentially compete for a spot on the bench for the Accrington Stanley match.

“As we’ve said before, it’s fairly unlikely they’d get on the pitch unless the game is well in hand, but we want to give them the opportunity to show the manager and the staff what they can do in training and then go from there.”

Wagmi United took over Crawley Town on April 7.

The Red Devils said they remain “committed” to winning the first round tie but look forward to the possibility of the brothers joining the team on a trial basis.

The team say this will help introduce them to millions of potential new supporters in the process.

Tobi, who  has 13 million combined followers on his platforms, co-founded The Sidemen with his friends in 2013.

Today, they are one of the most well-known internet groups in the UK.

Manny Brown has played semi-pro football for Romford FC in the Isthmian League.
