LEWIS YOUNG believes he may have had his best season yet for Crawley.

The younger sibling of Manchester United star Ashley has provided Reds with some valuable goals in recent weeks, having never found the back of the net in his previous four years with the club.

He broke his duck in February with a last-gasp winner on the road at Chesterfield, and has since added another three to his tally.

The 28-year-old right-back has been one of the most consistent performers in Harry Kewell’s side this season, having started 36 of Crawley’s 47 games – and Saturday’s defeat by Coventry was his 21st on the bounce.

He scored in that loss – a composed finish that put his side on level terms – but ended up being in vain.

Young said: “It’s maybe been my best season.

“I’ve had some positive moments over my four years here, and now I’m finally getting on the scoresheet, I feel I’m contributing in a different way.”

Elder brother Ashley, who has half the goals of his brother this season, has played his part in the defender’s development.

“My wife, mum, dad and brothers all tell me just to strike it when I get a chance,” Young added.

“This year I’ve got more confidence and that comes from the management who want me to keep getting forward.”

Reds go to Exeter tomorrow.
