Crawley Town have boosted their competition in central defence by signing defender Jamie Sendles-White on a one-year contract with a year's option.

The centre-half’s most recent club was National League Torquay United, for whom he made three appearances last season.

Sendles-White, 25, began his career with QPR, during which time he played seven games on loan at Mansfield Town, before a move to Hamilton Academicals.

He includes Swindon Town and Leyton Orient among his former clubs and last season had a brief spell with St Albans City before joining Torquay.

Reds boss Gabriele Cioffi said: “We need to have more competition for places at centre-half and Jamie has been training with us for a while now and we have been impressed with his qualities and attitude.

"He has an opportunity now to settle down at a club and show us what he is capable of and work hard for a place in the team."
