THREE TO WATCH - CRAWLEY TOWN

4 November 2016

Take a look at some of the potential threats in the ranks of tomorrow's Emirates FA Cup opponents, Crawley Town


James Collins - Striker


The experienced forward has five league goals to his name so far this season and has scored in both of Crawley's Checkatrade Trophy fixtures, taking him to a tally of seven goals for the season.

After starting his career at Aston Villa, Collins gained his first experience of first team football with loan spells at Burton and Darlington.

At the beginning of 2011, the striker joined Shrewsbury Town, where he manufactured an impressive goal return before moving north of the border for a spell with Scottish outfit Hibernian in 2013.

Following his spell in Scotland, the forward returned to Shrewsbury ahead of the 2014/15 season.

Last season Collins was part of the Northampton Town side that won promotion from Sky Bet League Two and joined Crawley Town on a free transfer in the summer.

Jimmy Smith - Midfielder

A regular player for Crawley this season, as the midfielder has made fifteen appearances so this season.

A graduate of the youth academy at Chelsea, after featuring regularly for Chelsea's reserve side during the 2005–06 season, Smith made his first-team debut in May 2006. It turned out to be his only appearance for the club, before joining QPR in 2006 on loan.

After a lengthy spell at Leyton Orient, Smith spent the 2013-14 at Stevenage, before joining Crawley in 2014 and progressing to make over eighty appearances.

The midfielder has also represented England at various youth levels.

Enzio Boldewijn - Striker

With three goals this season, Enzio is chasing down James Collins in the Crawley Town scoring charts.

Starting his career with FC Utrecht, the twenty-three-year-old Dutch forward joined Crawley this summer and has made fifteen appearances so far this season.

His last goal for Crawley came in their 2-0 victory over Luton in September.
