Dannie Bulman: Football League’s oldest player signs new deal at Crawley Town

Dannie Bulman helped Crawley finish 13th in League Two last season

Crawley Town midfielder Dannie Bulman, the English Football League’s oldest player, has signed a one-year extension that means he will still be kicking a ball in the EFL at the age of 42.

Bulman, currently 41, has agreed a player-coach deal with Crawley, where he has made more than 300 appearances.

“Dannie is a crucial member of the team and brings years of experience into the dressing room,” said boss John Yems.

Town have also signed veteran defender Tony Craig, 35, on a two-year deal.

The former Millwall and Brentford centre-back has made more than 500 appearances across the Football League’s three divisions and was released by League One side Bristol Rovers this summer.

Yems added: “Tony and I go back a long time from our days at Millwall – he brings a wealth of experience to the squad, he’s a good example to have around.”

Additionally, Crawley have brought in midfielder Tyler Frost and left-back Archie Davies, both 21, on two-year deals after their releases by Reading and Brighton respectively.

Frost did not play a senior game for the Royals, while Davies made one Seagulls appearance in a Carabao Cup loss to Aston Villa in September 2019.

League Two side Crawley also have the option of a third year on Davies’ deal.
