League 2 club Crawley Town are understood to be considering former Arsenal and Chelsea youth coach Dermot Drummy for the managerial vacancy at the club according to The Argus.

The Red Devils sacked former manager Mark Yates on Monday after the club suffered six straight league defeats. Crawley Town scored just twice during this poor sequence of results while conceding 14 goals.

New Crawley Town owner Ziya Eren is understood to be looking to make a swift managerial appointment after Yates’ dismissal and there is a real possibility that the club could have a new man in the dugout in time for Saturday’s trip to bottom club Dagenham & Redbridge.

It has been reported that Eren has identified former Arsenal and Chelsea youth coach Dermot Drummy as the club’s potential new manager with the pair said to have already met to discuss the job. Drummy worked as youth coach at Arsenal before joining Chelsea in 2009 and guiding the club’s academy side to an FA Youth Cup victory in 2010 before being promoted to reserve team coach and winning the Barclays U21 Premier League in 2014.

Drummy’s playing career saw the midfielder fail to make the grade at Arsenal and he went on to make a career playing in non league for the likes of Hendon, Wealdstone and St Albans City.

Former Luton Town first team coach Hakan Hayrettin has also been linked with the vacancy at Broadfield Stadium.
