Crawley have signed League Two’s top scorer Dom Telford.

He will arrive on a three-year deal as a free transfer after his contract at Newport County expires on June 30.

Telford scored 26 goals in all competitions last season and was named in the League Two Team of the Year.

His arrival is a huge coup for Reds under their new management duo of Kevin Betsy and Dan Micciche.

Telford told “I am absolutely buzzing to be here and get the deal over the line.

“It has been a bit of a fast deal, to be honest, but I am buzzing to get in for the start of the season.

“I spoke to the manager, the assistant and the owners, and I am an ambitious player.


“I like the sound of what is going on at the club at the minute.

“Everyone is getting behind it, and it is clear where they want to take the club. I feel like this is a good place to call home.”

Reds will host QPR in a friendly on Saturday, July 9 (3pm).
