Sergio was on talk sport this morning and in good form.He was very funny and has that rare gift of being liked by everyone.It got me thinking,should we have kept him on as an ambassador for the club?
He could be involved in every aspect of the club.He is still our most famous player and by far the most popular.He would be great at visiting schools, businesses, and entertaining on match days.He would be worth his weight in gold as the face of Crawley Town and an absolute asset to the club.

Club haven't missed a trick because they have a team of people who do that.

Simply Sergio wanted to continue playing and for CTFC they didn't want that.

Unless he want's to work for free, I'm sure the club would take him then.

I think we should have kept him with hindsight, given no one anticipated the mass exodus. We need at least two more midfielders to go with Smith, Henderson,Simpson and Edwards. If we are down to recruiting players who were on trial then Sergio would have been a much better option, he is fit as a butchers dog and comitted to the club.

I am sure he is a better option than Simon Heslop for example no disprespect to him .

Im sure we have plenty of faceless pencil pushers with zero charisma who have only ever sat behind a desk throwing scrawled up paper footballs into a waste basket bin.I bet all the businesses and thousands of school kids in the area would love to meet these people your talking about.

The reality is that if Sergio was up to L1 football he would not have signed for Whitehawk.

As Ross says he wanted to carry on playing so a match day ambassador job wouldn't work.

And the fact we all thought the players would stay on much publicised reduced money....

I think you will find that Birtug Kazim and the Community Team are quite active in local schools. Plus the recently announced partnership with the MS Youth League. And bringing in the funding of 5k we got from the Police Community Fund about 2 weeks ago.

I don't know if you have ever met them? Faceless pencil pushers they are not.

I'm sure they do sterling work, but who?

Did he score a last gasp winner for non league Crawley against championship side (and former league champions) Derby County on live TV?

I wax responding to the point that they were faceless pencil pushers.

In any case I'm not sure why the Derby goal is so relevant. Sergio wanted to carry on playing, and didn't get a single FL offer (according to the Argus), so clearly we weren't that wide of the mark releasing him. He then signed for Whitehawk which hardly makes a matchday job practical.

We already had a community team in place so there isn't a vacancy there unless we are planning to fire people to accommodate him.

If Sergio had stayed and was still wanted by the club as a player, it would have been on massively reduced wages. Something like that would affect his morale no matter how much he would try to play his way through it. So possibly better all round for him to have a fresh start.

Picture the scene Ian.
Young William is sitting in assembly with a few hundred other 6 and 7 year olds.
The headmistress addresses the children and calls for hush.
"Children,we have a very special guest from Crawley Town visiting our school today"An excited murmur fills the hall as eager faces look towards the headmistress."Children,please give a huge welcome to Birtug Kazim who is part of Crawley Towns community team"
William and a few hundred other childrens eyes glaze over as they go back to picking their nose and staring out the window.

A number of players did school visits last season. I'm sure the likes of Drury and Tubbs went down just as well.

I doubt many 6 or 7 year olds would know we ever played Derby.

If we have a half decent season there will be new people at Crawley for them to talk about.

In that case, there is no point continuing with the conversation.
