Crawley have signed Lee Barnard and Roarie Deacon on one-year deals.

Manager Mark Yates has confirmed the pair put pen-to-paper before tonight’s 1-0 win at home to Championship side Reading.

Both have impressed in pre-season.

Yates would not comment on the future of striker Izale McLeod who has been linked with a move away from the club but said he would be in the squad for the friendly at Nuneaton on Wednesday.
