Top of the league again!

I’m just leaving Torquay on a very contented Alliance coach, with my Torquay unbeaten record maintained, the Reds top of the League, and another exceptional performance witnessed. Torquay United were lucky to get one, and with a little more composure in front of goal we could have scored half a dozen. Oh, and I learned that the Torquay boardroom does great cake. Thanks for that, Ben Smith! We had a fairly smooth trip down, only marred by a traffic jam […]

I had to satisfy myself with Truro v Yeovil, much of which I also missed as I was too busy looking at Bruce Talbot’s online […]

CTSA – Welcome from the Co-Chair

One week ago we launched the Crawley Town Supporters Alliance. Since then the twelve of us have hardly had time to draw breath, and I thought you might like an insight into what we’ve been doing. So here goes! We’ve had a week full of media interest, membership applications, travel preparations and website discussions. We’ve arranged premises at the football club, put together content for our website, ordered membership cards, opened our Facebook group, designed forms and databases, and began […]
