Former Watford winger Bobson Bawling is expected to sign a contract with League One side Crawley Town.

The 18-year-old, who was released by the Hornets at the end of last season, has been on trial with the Reds and has featured for the club throughout their pre-season campaign.

Crawley boss John Gregory anticipates Bawling will have signed a deal by the weekend.

He told Crawley News: “Against Brighton, Bobson played for down the right hand side and he’s another one who we will probably sign before the weekend.

“He is another young kid who will come and give us numbers, he’s got some good qualities.”
