Archie Davies is delighted to secure a League Two deal after being let go by Albion.

The full-back from St Leonards has signed a two-year contract at Crawley Town.

He was among the under-23s released by the Seagulls this summer.

Davies’ arrival was announced on a busy day for Reds.

They also confirmed deals for ex-Millwall and Bristol Rovers defender Tony Craig and former Reading midfielder Tyler Frost, as well as revealing veteran Dannie Bulman would join the coaching team while extending his playing contract by a year.

Davies recognises he was let go at a time when budgets across the game were being tightened due to Covid-19.

He said: “It’s really good to get something sorted. It’s a tough situation for a lot of players.

“I’ve got some sort of experience playing against first teams in the Checkatrade Trophy with the under-23s.

“I played a League Cup game at Brighton (versus Aston Villa) and I’m ready to test myself in the Football League.”

Craig, 35, will add a wealth of experience.

Reds boss John Yems said: “Tony and I go back a long time from our days at Millwall. He’s a good example to have around and he will fit in with the squad.”
