Crawley Town have signed Chris Arthur from Vanarama National side Woking on a free transfer as confirmed by the club website.
The 26-year-old left winger, who can also play at left back, does have some experience in the Football League having played for the likes of QPR and Rotherham United but will spent at least another year in it after signing a one year deal with Crawley with the option for one more.
Arthur had been at AFC Wimbledon when he was loaned to Woking back in 2014 but impressed enough on that spell earn himself a permanent deal with the club. During his time at the non-league side he made 82 appearances and a number of solid performances saw him catch the eye of a few Football League clubs which has led to him returning back to League 2 and joining Crawley as they aim to get promoted back to League 1.
After the signing of Arthur, Crawley head coach Dermot Drummy said,
“Chris is a player both Matt Gray and I know well. He’s been with Woking for the last two years but he is more than capable of making the step back up to League football, in fact he will thrive on an opportunity to establish himself again at this level.
“He’s versatile, which we like. He can play at left-back or left midfield and we’re delighted to have him with us.”
