Crawley Town have signed Reece Grego-Cox from non-league side Woking on a free transfer as confirmed by the club website.
The 21-year-old striker has been noted for a while and could be a full international in the future having come through the Republic of Ireland youth teams, getting five caps for their U21s. In terms of his club career, he came through the QPR academy and made a few appearances for them though he made more in a loan spell at Newport County. After being released in January 2018, he moved into non-league football with Woking and would score four goals in 18 appearances for them.
But Grego-Cox has now returned to the EFL after signing a two-year contract with the Red Devils. He had been on trial with them and had done enough to impress head coach Harry Kewell to hand him that deal. Crawley finished 14th in Sky Bet League One last season and will hope that this signing can fire them into contention for the play-offs.
Following the signing, Kewell said: “Reece has really done well since he joined us for pre-season and we think he’s got a lot to offer. He works hard, he can play in different attacking roles and I like his hunger to make the most of this opportunity.”
Grego-Cox could be in action for Crawley when they face Ipswich Town on the 17th July in a pre-season friendly. Their Sky Bet League Two season will be kicked off with an away match against Cheltenham Town.
