The 57-year-old was most recently scouting for Bristol City and replaces Martin Hinshelwood who left the club to follow former manager Richie Barker to Portsmouth last month.

Manager John Gregory said: “Lil has got a wealth of experience and contacts in the game and is the ideal replacement for Martin Hinshelwood.”

“I trust his advice on players and although the final decision on recruitment rests with me I know with my existing coaching staff and also Lil that I have excellent experience and knowledge to call upon when it comes to identifying players who we feel can take Crawley Town forward.”

Fucillo has also worked in player recruitment for Sheffield Wednesday, Newcastle, Everton and Swansea.

He added: “I have known John a long time and I like his approach to the game. He wants good footballers at Crawley who play the right way and hopefully I can help find them for the club.

“I really think John can take the club forward. I have been made to feel very welcome and I can’t wait to get started and help make Crawley Town an even better club.”
