Crawley Town have sacked Dermot Drummy as manager after just 12 months in charge.

Drummy paid the price for a poor run of form which saw Reds dragged into the League Two relegation fight.

The former Chelsea academy coach leaves - along with assistant Matt Gray - with Crawley 21st in the table going into the final game of the season against Mansfield Town on Saturday.

Drummy was axed following a meeting with chairman Ziya Eren who flew in from Turkey this week.

His final game in charge was the Sussex Senior Cup final at the Amex last night which Crawley lost 3-0 to Albion after extra-time.
