Former Albion midfielder James Tilley has joined Crawley on a two-and-a-half year deal with an option for a third.

The 22-year-old joined on a free transfer last night after his release from fellow League Two side Grimsby on Thursday.

Tiley, who is from Billingshurst spent nine years with Albion, where he progressed through the ranks.

However, he only managed to make two senior appearances during his time at the club.

The first came in 2014/15 in the Championship when he came off the bench to replace Jake Forster-Caskey in the 95th minute in their 0-0 draw away to Middlesbrough.

His second appearance came in the EFL Cup in 2017/18 where he scored the winner against Barnet at the Amex in second round.

Tilley admits the move came around quickly.

He said: "I'm buzzing to be here it came around quite quick, but got it all sorted today (Friday) and I'm looking forward to getting going."

Crawley were scheduled to travel to Bradford this afternoon, but the game was called off last night due to adverse weather conditions.
