Drury snapped up by Crawley

Former Luton Town favourite Andy Drury has agreed a two-year deal with League One Crawley Town following his release by Championship side Ipswich.

Drury quickly became a popular figure at Kenilworth Road, scoring eight goals in 26 games following his move from Stevenage, before the Tractor Boys signed him for £150,000 in January 2011.

The 29-year-old was later loaned to the Red Devils, and said: “I’m delighted to be back at Crawley Town.

“I’m hoping to create and score as many goals as I can in what is a very competitive league next season.

“I’ve been impressed by the gaffer and the group of players we have here.”

New boss Richie Barker added: “He has terrific energy and can also weigh in with his share of goals. He is coming here for the right reasons. He acquitted himself well in the Championship and wants to play at that level again.

“He’s the sort of player I want at the club, someone who is good in possession, works hard and has the right attitude so I’m delighted he’s coming to us. I’m sure our fans are too because I know he was extremely popular during his loan spell with us.”
