Crawley have signed David Sesay on a two-year deal after a successful trial.

The 19-year-old, who can play full back or in midfield, worked with Reds head coach Harry Kewell at Watford.

He was a regular with the Hornets under-23s last season before being released.

Kewell said: “David is a player I know well. I worked with him extensively when I was at Watford and know what his potential is. He’s versatile, works extremely hard and since he joined the group in pre-season he has really impressed and definitely deserves this opportunity.

“The rest is up to him. He is definitely capable of playing in the team and I expect him to be pushing hard for a place straight away.”
