Tom McGill Joins Crawley on Loan from Brighton
Crawley announced via their website they had signed the young keeper. McGill arrives on loan for the remainder of the season.
He becomes John Yems’ first signing and will compete with current number one Glenn Morris.
The 19-year-old is highly thought of at Brighton and clearly, they want him to go out on loan and get some experience under his belt.
McGill will fill the void left by Michael Luyambula who has returned to parent club Birmingham City. The young Brighton stopper will be hoping to make a positive impression from now until the end of the season.
He has been a regular for Brighton’s Under 23s making over 30 appearances for them after stepping up from under 18 level. A keeper certainly Brighton will watch over the next few months as they look to continue his development.
McGill could make his Crawley debut this weekend when they face Grimsby Town.
“Tom McGill Is Progressing Well” – John Yems
Speaking to the Crawley website about his new signing, manager John Yems said “Tom is progressing really well at Brighton and this is the next part of his development, to come to a League club and compete for a place in the side”
McGill Is Ready To Step Up
McGill has been a regular for Brighton’s youth sides, but this will be his first taste of league football.
He will go to Crawley to continue his football education and hopefully make a good impression both on and off the pitch. Brighton sees a bright future for him but he needs to develop as a player.
League Two is an excellent league to start in. Crawley will aid his development and certainly, he will get his opportunity to impress. John Yems will certainly help his football education. It’s a good deal for both clubs and the player.
