Crawley Town part company with head coach after 14 months

Crawley Town have parted company with head coach Gabriele Cioffi after 14 months in charge following a poor run of form.

His last match was a 2-1 FA Cup defeat at home to Fleetwood, making it their 10th defeat in 14 games – a run which stretches back to late September.

The Italian head coach, who succeeded Harry Kewell, won 21 of his 72 games in charge of Crawley Town after 14 months in charge.

They were without a league win since their victory against Colchester on the 12th of October which has seen them slip down to 17th in the League Two table, their only other win since then was a 4-1 FA Cup victory over Scunthorpe.

“Gabriele Cioffi has today left his position as head coach by mutual consent,” Crawley said in a statement.

“The club would like to thank Gabriele for his services to Crawley Town and we wish him all the best for the future.”

Cioffi’s assistant Edu Rubio, who joined the club from MK Dons in the summer, has taken charge of first-team affairs on an interim basis.

Crawley’s next match is away to Stevenage on Saturday.


After finding out that their manager had been sacked, fans took to plead with the club that they appointed an experienced EFL manager – see what they wrote on the next page.
